Chris Watson – Weather Report

In keeping with tradition, we dive into the waters of field recordings for February and this time we discuss on of the classics of the genre – “Weather Report” by Chris Watson. Having spent time in Cabaret Voltaire and Hafler Trio, Waston set out on a lifelong journey recording in the field. “Weather Report” was his first compositional album in this style, and we get into every aspect of each track, from titles to location to possible sounds heard.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, we discuss the very early compositional field recording track “Etude Aux Chemins De Fer” by Pierre Schaefer.

Get the album at BandCamp and visit for more information.
