Storm by Chris Watson & BJNilsen - Touch [TONE27] FLAC download included with physical items


A 3 track minimal/glitch single (50m 9s) — released November 13th 2006 on Touch

This CD continues the collaboration between Chris Watson and BJNilsen, which began with 'Wind' [Ash International, 2001] and 'Land' [Touch, 2001] and comprises 3 tracks, 2 solo and 1 collaboration. Chris Watson writes: "During December 2000 several significant storm fronts developed across the North Sea and Scandinavia. Benny remarked to me that he had recorded some of these on the Baltic coast and proposed a collaborative cd project based around our mutual interests in the rhythms and music created when the elements combine over land and out to sea. We spent the next few years gathering recordings on our respective coastlines and islands during the very active weather windows during the autumnal equinox and winter solstice. This was focused around our following one particular cyclonic system, which veers over Snipe Point on Lindisfarne to the Isle of May in the Firth of Forth, and finally descends upon Öland and Gotland where Benny listened in with a favourite pair of Sennheiser omnidirectional microphones."

It's a meditative, strange experience, and comes highly recommended. - BBCi Pete Marsh abstract-expressionist sonic movie as gripping as any recording you've heard this year - Jess Harvill Baltimore City Paper
