Splice Explores Antelope Island | 264.00 MB
Antelope Island, the largest island in the Great Salt Lake, is one of the crown jewels of Utah’s state park system. The uninhabited 42-square-mile desert island is renowned for its wildlife watching, including one of the nation’s largest bison herds, pristine ecosystems, and gorgeous desert and mountain vistas.
Due to increasing temperatures and snowmelt in the area during the ’80s and ’90s, the surrounding lake routinely flooded the island, marooning the bison and all other wildlife into small mini islands for decades at a time. Today, temperatures have dried out the salt flats to such an extent that Antelope Island is no longer an island at all. Not to mention, the Great Salt Lake is a puddle of its former self, with salinity far beyond what’s found in the ocean.
A group of Splice producers and musicians traveled to this delicate ecosystem to capture its unique sounds before they cease to exist. The pack consists of natural ambiances and field recordings, percussion played by world-renowned drummer Brian Rosenworcel using rocks, wood, and surrounding nature, and majestic vocals from Kathryn Shuman sung in caves and natural reverbs throughout the island. Explore these sounds in your production, capture a truly unique landscape, and share the memory of a precious place that may never be the same again.
