Sound by Max Eastley

Available on CD

Exclusive to Cape Farewell

Max Eastley’s ARCTIC premiered to a sell-out audience at the Planetarium in Hamburg, April 2007.

"Arctic is a series of sonic images. Their composition involved a process of sifting, editing and constructing from the many hours of recordings made in the Arctic. The work is a summation of my experience of the sublime: exhilaration, fear, and an overwhelming sense of tragedy unfolding before me. I hope that the music communicates my emotion, passion and concern for this fragile natural world."
Max Eastley, March 2007

This 10 track album features sound recordings made on the Cape Farewell voyages including the Bearded Seal, the Nooderlicht sailing schooner, Barentsberg coal mine and recordings of the Arc, electro acoustic monochord played by Eastley at Cape Farewell exhibitions in Oxford 2005 and London 2006.
