Recording primarily under the name Subalpine, using field recordings in addition
to processed acoustic recordings and electronic tones. Currently editing a
series of field recordings, 'South Fork Mill', from a mountainous region of
northeastern Washington state recorded over the course of a year. With the
recordings to be left unprocessed but freely edited, themes of landscape and
season will remain central while the approach to recording focuses on up-close
textures (snow, brush, etc) as well, aiming more to create sound-sketches of the
excursions than to document.

Neil Wiernik (b.1967, Mtl, Can.) is an audio contortionist, radiophonic engager and
digital medium specialist presently living and working in Toronto. He has presented his
work across Canada, the United States and Europe. Neil's work is concerned with various
types of story-telling using the art of "phonography" for expression of these recorded
ideas. He some times uses preexisting or self-developed radio frequencies for diffusion
of these projects but almost always uses sounds that are found in his acoustic environment.
Some of his recent works have been presented at the Finland Contemporary Museum, ISEA,
Subtile Technologies Conference, The Medusa Complex and Gallery Optica.

Heliograph2000, "Still Lives, Beautiful Scenes, and Redevelopmental Ambience from the Archives of H2000"
(CDR + HTML-based multimedia disc) Libertatia Recordings, 2000
An attempt to capture some of the changes in ambience in a small city undergoing downtown
redevelopment as they were occuring, using actual field recordings, atmospheric soundscapes
and Quicktime videos of the downtown area.
Heliograph Sound Docs / Helio0, "Summer Twilights" (2CDR) Libertatia Recordings, 2001
The Heliograph Sound Docs recording, "Summer Twilight Like the End of the World,"documents
the normal sounds of late summer at dusk. Cicadas, crickets, and crows chorus through several
tracks, along with the sounds of fountains, air conditioners, and aircraft passing overhead.
A week of nightly soundwalks led to the helio_ tracks on the second disc, "Into the Trees with
the Insect Machines." Composed by combining tiny bits of audio from the HSD recordings, the
insect choruses and background noises explore a world where the bugs are wilder, and sometimes
bigger, the machines frequently malfunction, and there is nary a human sound to be heard.
