A Natural History of Southwestern Ontario has been published serially since the late seventies and was collected in book form for the first time last year by ECW Press; the time, now, has come for the emergence of an audio version. Created by Steve Venright, this two-and-a-half-hour-long sonic interpretation consists of over five hundred original recordings, made at locations specific to the text and woven into a reading of the entire four-book poem by the author. Venright takes Dewdney's masterpiece to a new realm of experience to create one of the most ambitious soundscapes ever made, a hyperlucid, sometimes hallucinatory exploration that spans several geological eras of the geography and countless creatures of Southwestern Ontario. Primal, erotic, cerebral and exalted, A Natural History of Southwestern Ontario will envelop you in the visionary landscape of Canada's most adventurous poet.
