Banks Bailey (born 1961, USA) is primarily a sound recordist who captures places from the environment which intersect with his own projections of beauty and mystery.
Based in Tucson, Arizona, he travels to remote wilderness areas within the southwestern deserts and mountains of the United States, recording in locations that are rapidly being lost due to the ever increasing human footprint upon this world.
From these field recordings,he has created sound works for Mystery Sea, Fungal and Quiet World labels and has collaborated with Darren Tate and Ian Holloway.
