Wetlands by Jack Hertz Now Available on Aural Films Netlabel

Wetlands is a collection of Intelligent Ambient Music compositions inspired by places of greenery and water where life abounds in ponds, marshes and swamps. These tracks stem from what I think of as impressionist music. The selection and organization of sounds are meant to evoke a memory of a place or environment that is part documentary and part hallucination. Download the album now at http://auralfilms.bandcamp.co…
