Coyotes, songbirds, owls and ...

Coyotes, songbirds, owls and frogs are part of Desert Solitudes, recorded by Bernie Krause and Ruth Happel in the Sonoran and Chihuauan deserts, part of New Mexico's panhandle. Host Ben Adair finds life in Death Valley desert towns and its denizens along “Mojave Road.” Kraut-rockers Faust send out “Long Distance Calls in the Desert.” The Quiet American sound-captures the forbidding warning signs rattling in a harsh wind under the “Desert Sun” outside the nuclear Nevada Test Site north of Las Vegas. Back in the early 1990s, SLC producer Scott Carrier headed towards the Basin and Range near Nevada's “Battle Mountain.”

This is a HearingVoices special.
