Wildlife sound recordist and composer Mark Ferguson is fascinated by the intricate sonic fabric of nature.
He is perhaps best known for his bumblebee recordings, which immerse the listener in the highly-detailed, proximate sound worlds of flower beds, suburban undergrowth, riverside vegetation and other habitats.
His electroacoustic compositions are characterised by their subtle, textural superimpositions of processed and unprocessed sonic material, and are crafted exclusively from his own library of natural source recordings.
Mark’s work has been broadcast on BBC Radio 4, mentioned by the Guardian and selected for performance in the UK, Ireland and the USA.
He is currently a doctoral researcher at the University of Birmingham.
