about

Dragon’s Eye Recordings is pleased to announce it’s first release from Seattle artist Jake Muir. With 'Acclimation,' Muir continues his focus on mood, texture, and place, by taking found sounds and presenting them in a new context. Muir began field recording with the mindset of a natural sound recordist, in that he was largely interested in environments “free” from man made noise. More recently, Muir began contemplating the perspective that man is part of the soundscape, and that there is beauty to be found in some of our machinations. This acceptance of the given state of things opened his ears to more sonic possibilities.

Last fall, Muir was invited to perform at Seattle’s Corridor Festival, which would take place at the Georgetown Steam Plant — a historic landmark over a century old. Muir took this opportunity as an impetus to create a live set based solely on industrial and aqueous field recordings, given the context of the setting. This live set became the basis for 'Acclimation,' where the goal was to exploit the harmonic elements in these man-made sounds and to largely deconstruct the source material. The album consists of a variety of recordings made in Los Angeles, Vancouver, Iceland, and Washington. In thinking of what content he might utilize, Muir gave a home to recordings he had forgotten about and had previously deemed not useful.
