    Geasong is the environmental musical project conceived by singer/songwriter Rebecca Cross. Geasong's first release is comprised of five movement song-cycles tuned and rhythmically entrained to field recordings of nature. Each movement was composed to bring the listener into greater resonance with the natural audio world.
    Geasong is organized around the inherent pitch and pulsing of different elements and creatures in the wild. The single Curious Child was recorded in the 350 foot underground Moaning Cavern in North-Central California utilizing the rhythmic patterns of water drops that have been falling in the same spot for over 400,000 years. Nocturne L'Oiseau is created around the low frequencies in the call of the western screech owl mixed with the mating call of a tree frog. Dream the Bee is organized around a hive of bees as the predominant tuning and resulting overtones amplified to sound like a harmonium.
    To create Geasong, Cross traveled deep into the Ecuadorian Amazon by canoe to recorded rare bird calls and worked with the Achuar Shaman Don Rafael Taich. Geasong was mixed by 2016 Grammy nominated audio engineer, Ryan Kleeman, who also provided many of the field recordings from North America and ambient soundscapes.
