The National Parcs are the ultimate environmentalist band. Doesn’t get much more organic than this:

While I’m on ‘organic recordings’, I just reminisced about a recording I did with a good friend of mine something like 4 years ago. After a very impressive 2 minute search in my CD collection I found it.
Now this track may seem chaotic in some respects but the musical piece itself was actually entirely scored. I remember the session as if it were yesterday: my friend (the very spiritual talented-drummer type) had brought a big sports bag full of things you would normally find in the woods along with a four or five page long percussion score. We basically turned the booth into a jungle, and I could’ve sworn I saw a centipede or other like-wise insects running around that day. The session lasted 5 to 7 hours if I recall correctly, and the editing took us twice as long. We had something like 40 tracks working on a very buggy Mac, itself running a very buggy Logic Pro. Those were the days. Anyways have a listen:
