NWF AG productions of artists sound works.
Experimental and traditional music, poetry, story telling and other sound art.

Audiographics was a project of the New Wilderness Foundation. The first series was produced by Ondina Fiori and Charlie Morrow. Graphic design - Mary Nell Hawk

Approx. 40 titles were released

It was the first artists audio work label in the USA. The programming range conformed with the New Wilderness new/old approach. At the time of production, the 1970s, mixing folk, so called native and high art work was new. Much has happened to break down the barriers, hierarchies still separate the sonic work in diverse cultures and disciplines, we still live in a world of categories. Fortunately, world music is a growing genre and the big remix is on.

This is the first New Wilderness AUDIOGRAPHICS series. We offer quality stereo cassettes with graphic and descriptive material of experimental and traditional music, poetry, storytelling and other sound and language art.

A major asset is our professional recording studio. For a number of years we have donated studio time and recording expertise to many artists, producing high-quality studio and on-location recordings. Many members of the creative community have trained here, learning studio recording and production tech¬niques. Traditional artists, usually recordved only live in the field come to our studio to develop new approaches to their recorded work.

PHILIP CORNER is a composer familiar to avant garde audiences for his unique vision of sound, a picturing of elements and energy. Recently tie fathered the collective on-going ritual Sounds Out of Silent Spaces. In the early 60's together with James Tenney and Malcolm Goldstein, he organized the pioneering Tone Roads Concerts. Earlier still, he studied music in Paris and calligraphy in Korea, where he was stationed in the U.S. Army.

The members of the Crow Dog family are tradi-tionalists who for generations, have perserved the Sioux tribal culture and religion, in spite of years of repression by missionaries and bureaucrats. Rituals, songs, legends and tribal history have been faithfully transmit¬ted from grandparents to grandchildren. Song and religion being inseparable, all members of the family have always automatically also been musicians.
