In spring 2008 Chris Watson was invited by Sound Threshold to undertake a residency at CEALP / Monte Bondone (Mount Bondone) and Paneveggio Park, during which he explored the acoustic phenomena of Trentino region and captured the sounds of the alpine environment. The series of sound recordings made on location resulted in the CD Cima Verde, which presents the soundscapes uncovered by Watson during his residency.

Cima Verde is also the title of Watson's surround sound installation that was presented in the exhibition Auditory EpodeManifesta 7, Rovereto 2008.
