Oh, Beautiful Bridge

by Andy Klingensmith

Salamander 06:29


Oh, Beautiful Bridge is a set of two sound collage pieces from Chicago's Andy Klingensmith. Found sounds gathered around the midwest accompany synthesis and object-oriented soundmaking. Noise floor as an instrument, cicaca plumes. Summer music without a doubt, humid and heavy. Wade to the center of a shallow, wide river and wait for the evening monsoon to roll in.


released July 28, 2022

Field and improvisational recordings taken at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in northern Wisconsin, Bristol Renaissance Faire, and in and outside of Chicago, Illinois throughout the summer of 2021 using a variety of traditional and nontraditional instruments.

Recorded, composed, and mixed by Andy Klingensmith, with special thanks to Vanessa Valadez for her companionship and performances throughout the album's conception.
