Alan Morse Davies - Svalbard
A collection of pieces based on the landscape of the Svalbard archipelago. Source materials include the Welsh pibgyrn (bagpipe), Italian zampogna (bagpipe) and ciamarella (shawm), hardanger fiddle plus some 78 records from the 1920s. All have been stretched, processed, re-tuned and edited into monolithic soundscapes ranging from the relatively static to the dramatic.
