Fabio Viola Really hard to pick a favorite in this outstanding selection featuring so many great artists. I picked the one featuring Christina Vantzou because it’s too blissful to even describe. Favorite track: Music for a room with vaulted ceiling.

craigtheautotroph This album fits between music and life. It's not a nature album, it is an interpretation of nature and I love that so many musicians have taken the raw communication and "sight" between bats and composed these lovely reflections.

Feeling that the Echo Affinity track had taken the echolocation sounds and slowed them down enough so that Taylor Deupree could respond, I sped up the turntable to 45 and it also sounds fantastic. This album (and project) is a treat! Favorite track: Night Swimming.

Lahet Kherev "It is simply amazing how quickly attitudes improve when people finally understand bats as they really are - sophisticated, beautiful, even cute - quite aside from their crucial roles as primary predators of insects, pollinators of flowers, and dispersers of seeds." - Merlin Tuttle, Bat Conservationist and author of The Secret Lives of Bats Favorite track: Between the Hawthorn and Extinction.

Diogo During my Biology undergrad studies, I had several friends working with bats and nocturnal birds. I had the chance to listen to some of their recordings but I never imagined they could serve as inspiration for something so beautiful!
Thank you for fostering such a wonderful project :)

about

Stuart Hyatt returns with another sonic wonder in the Field Works series, bringing the listener into truly uncharted acoustic territory. Ultrasonic is perhaps the first-ever album to use the echolocations of bats as compositional source material. For this special album, Hyatt has assembled an extraordinary group of contributors: Eluvium, Christina Vantzou, Sarah Davachi, Ben Lukas Boysen, Machinefabriek, Mary Lattimore, Felicia Atkinson, Noveller, Chihei Hatakeyama, John Also Bennett, Kelly Moran, Taylor Deupree, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Julien Marchal, and Player Piano. Ultrasonic is part of a broader storytelling project about the federally endangered Indiana bat. Generously funded by the IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute and the National Geographic Society, each album contains an official printed booklet of The Endangered Species Act of 1973.
