Hailed as the modern heir to the legendary ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax, Ian Brennan has amassed one of the largest and most diverse bodies of field recordings in history. Brennan travels in search of countries and languages whose music is under-represented internationally, making field recordings of musicians and producing albums of their work. Aside from his non-profit production, charity fundraising, and political activism, Brennan has published several books, most recently his 2019 release Silenced by Sound: the Music Meritocracy Myth.
