Felicity Mangan’s instrumentation – largely animal – comprises field recordings from her native Australia and involves attaching piezoelectric transducers to hear things. She has performed at Berlin Atonal and with Native Instrument. Her 2019 digital track Stereo’frog’ic, released on Longform Editions, treats the listener to a frog choir from multiple angles.
