Mountain is an artistic collaboration between musicians Anni Hogan, Robert Strachan and Itchy Ear, film maker Bob Wass and mountaineer Cathy O'Dowd. Hogan and Itchy Ear originally worked on a series of piano pieces inspired by René Daumal's Mount Analogue and the superior wisdom of mountains, using O'Dowd's Himalayan conquests for particular authentic inspiration. Robert and Anni used these pieces and the Himalayan peaks as a template for painting a soundwave soundscape around the piano compositions. Cathy has supplied all the photographs for the album sleeve, beautifully edited by Abby Helasdottir, and Cathy has performed a fascinating and revealing monologue over the piece "Deathzone." The Mountain film has been created by Bob Wass from Cathy's original film footage of her Everest expeditions. The film and soundtrack are an experimental "journey" exploring the nature of "journey and mountains" sonically and visually.
