Meanwhile an excerpt from the record cover follows here: Artistic statement: I have spent the past two years collecting soundscapes in the fascinating and magical Røst archipelago in Northern Norway. I am carrying on this summer. I have done hours and hours of recordings, and for the first volume in the Soundscape Røst series, Im presenting my current favourites. I would like to remind you as a listener, that these field recordings are only documenting a brief moment in time. They are not meant to be a representation of the ”real”, even though some of them do sound quite a bit like soundscapes on Røst. As a sound recordist I have created hyper realities and made some artistic decisions along the way, that have shaped the content of what you listen to. I hope you take time to listen with a good pair of headphones in a dark, quiet place. However, what you do is your business after all! I hope the sounds will come alive inside you, and that you might be inspired to discover the origins of places like Røst yourselves.
