Canis Lupus

I will be presenting performance samples of my work at the International Wolf Symposium 2018 in Minneapolis, MN on October 11th-13th.

Music Inspired by Wolves
Composer William Neil believes that  wolves make the most mystical and haunting  sounds  in the wild.  Through digital acoustic editing, he has sculpted   recorded wolf calls, growls and choruses into breathtaking waves of sound.  Come hear him perform on his Aztec Whistle and Overtone Flute with the sound of wolves.

Friday, October 12th at 12:15 to 12:45

The most hated, most loved animals, wolves may have entered the the 21 century as the bearer of nature’s secrets to a balanced ecology.  The haunting and seemingly emotional communication of howling and growling instantly penetrates the deepest resonance of our souls.     My work in digital acoustics will continue to be informed by the latest research that is attempting to understand the sonic code inherent in the howl of wolves. Ultimately, I will compose several works that employ the howl of wolves, hopefully illuminating the mystic bond that humans share with this magnificent creature.

Here are a few soundscapes that I created from the recordings of wolf howls and encountered on the internet.
