This CD continues the collaboration between UK sound archivist Chris Watson (Cabaret Voltaire) and Swedish electronic artist BJ Nilsen (Hazard), which began with Wind (Ash International, 2001) and Land (Touch, 2001) and comprises 3 tracks, 2 solo and 1 collaboration. Chris Watson (formerly of The Hafler Trio) is a sound recordist with a particular and passionate interest in recording the wildlife sounds of animals, habitats and atmospheres from around the world. As a freelance recordist for film, TV & radio, Chris Watson specializes in natural history and documentary location sound together with track assembly and sound design in post production. He has previously released 3 CDs for Touch. BJNilsen lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden, and began working with experimental music and sound at an early stage. He was influenced by the early tape movements and founded Hazard in 1996. He now focuses on the sound of nature and its effect on humans, field recordings and the perception of time and space as experienced through sound. 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 favorite pair of Sennheiser omnidirectional microphones."
