Field recordings

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f4d55f44238>

Hiya!

Is it worth adding a secondary release group type of “field recording” for e.g. Environments 1: Psychologically Ultimate Seashore and Los Angeles: November 2019? They’re something quite distinct from music and speech, made by recording natural sounds, or in this instance, recording, layering, and manipulating sounds. It doesn’t feel right to me adding them in as a genre because they’re pretty fundamentally not music, even when they’re being produced like modern music.

What are other people’s opinions on this?

Cheers!
