NOT IN STOCK
Originally released in 2009. Six artists toured western Norway in April and May 2007, to experience and record its nature and rural culture. The itinerary included the small town of Sandane, the Jostedal glacier, Utvær -- Norway's westernmost island and the fjord city of Bergen. The works created out of the sonic input from this tour made up the components of Sleppet -- a sound art exhibition curated by Jørgen Larsson and presented by Grieg07, Lydgalleriet, Galleri 3.14 and Ultima. +3DB Records is proud to present a series of works based on the materials from Sleppet. "In my art I could not help but search for a way to express the wild music of the ocean's roar, but alas, in vain. I felt most deeply the impossibility of conveying that mighty chord in music. There was in that rushing and roaring something so infinite that it seemed presumptuous to dwell even for a moment on the idea of being able to reproduce it. Nonetheless, I found some comfort in that it is the artist's responsibility not to convey its material effect, but the reflection of the emotions it awakens; if this is done with genius then the impression can be equally divine despite the lack of the mass effect which is nature's own." --Edvard Grieg; Double CD and a 65-page catalog presenting works by Natasha Barrett, Marc Behrens, Bjarne Kvinnsland, Steve Roden, Chris Watson and Jana Winderen. Featuring color photographs, essays and interviews in Norwegian and English.
