about

Also available via Juno Records www.juno.co.uk/labels/Polar+Seas+Canada/

Carolina was produced during a four day excursion in several secluded areas in Cherokee and Spartanburg counties, S. Carolina. The primary emphasis in each composition is field recordings captured in the quiet hills of rural Chesnee, solemn wooded areas of Gaffney, and hidden creeks in the outskirts of Spartanburg. Carolina is a fitting title to these arrangements as its definition translates to ‘song of happiness or joy' from a French origin. These arrangements represent the joy, solitude and reverence I experienced in these beautiful parts of S. Carolina.

These four arrangements are intended for low-volume listening

Set against the backdrop of an escape to hidden corners of the rural Southeast, prolific healing sound propagandist zakè and Polar Seas Recordings present Carolina. Suffused with manipulated field recordings, each of Carolina's four pieces reenacts a moment in its composer's journey: "Gaffney Fields" pairs memorial chimes with a persistent drone, while the flowing "Chesnee Rivulet" and the gentle roar of "Woodland Aurora" evoke distant ensembles lost in a forest thrum. Mastered at Black Knoll Studio (NY) by Rafael Anton Irisarri, Carolina is a solemn yet joyful paean to seclusion, and the awe beyond our doors.
