The artist describes his work with Terrain Instruments, sound-monitoring constructions and installations in the landscape and explains how they differ from traditional musical instruments and sculpture. His own approach to composition incorporates both decision and chance. Brush details his work with sound selection through a microprocessor and explains how these 'soundworks' reach audiences. The viewer/listener is asked to use new channels of perception to experience artworks that proceed from a traditional source, the natural environment.
