Notes

CD + DVD + patch.
Please play the DVD and track one of the CD at the same time in order to experience the complete composition and sonic space intended.

The dvd and the cd both contain part of the music, both of which are meant to be played simultaneously, Zaireeka style, the fusion of the two resulting in a lush soundscape of layered organ drones and haunting choral harmonies, the music on its own is moving and mysterious, but when coupled with the visuals, it's that much more powerful.
The dvd is a gorgeously impressionistic visual travelogue of the process, the first image is the plane soaring over the clouds, then the snowed-in city, the trip to the site through epic expanses of snow, the actual building of the cabin, from the ground up, the whole thing peppered with lots of stunning shots of the surrounding landscape, the snow that goes on for miles, gorgeous pink tinged skies, distant mountains and dense almost black forests, eventually, the shots are through the windows of the cabin, the trees bowing in the cold wind outside, the clouds drifting across stunningly blue skies, eventually, there's one more survey of the pristine landscape surrounding the cabin, animal tracks, frozen lakes, the setting sun, trees still green, gathering storms in the distance, and finally, the cabin recedes into the distance, and we're back on the plane once again, heading home.
The accompanying music is the perfect soundtrack, spare and spacious, the distant drone a constant underpinning, the vocals drifting in and out, we were worried at first about matching up the two discs, but realized it almost doesn't matter, we tried multiple mixes, and it always sounded fantastic, wheezy chordal whirs, the vocals layered and wreathed in echo and reverb, a mysterious chorale that instead of building and then fading out, remains somewhat constant, with different voices receding and resurfacing, each part of the music slipping easily from just organ, to organ and voices, making for a constantly shifting landscape of muted melody and vocal texture, the vibe is sort of Grouper-ish, but a bit more medieval, a bit more arcane sounding, as if it were in fact some ancient ritual, reenacted for the building of this structure, to imbue it with the spirit of the ancients. The music is dark, but infused with a mysterious warmth, the perfect analogue really for the whole process/project.
The cd and the dvd are both housed in a super elaborate printed origami style fold out poster, sealed with a sticker

Background/Info: The Californian collective Common Eider, King Eider strikes back with a ‘special’ work, which has been announced as the first chapter from a ‘duology’. The album has been announced as one of the band’s most accomplished productions and is meant as ‘a sprawling, audial exploration of wounds at once physical and spiritual, social and societal, natural and environmental’. Content: The work features dark sonic corridors filled with icy, blasting sound treatments.

The common eider (pronounced /ˈaɪ. dər/) (Somateria mollissima), also called St. Cuthbert's duck or Cuddy's duck, is a large (50–71 cm (20–28 in) in body length) sea-duck that is distributed over the northern coasts of Europe, North America and eastern Siberia. It breeds in Arctic and some northern temperate regions, but winters somewhat farther south in temperate zones, when it can form large flocks on coastal waters. It can fly at speeds up to 113 km/h (70 mph).

Common Eider, King Eider. Continuing the trend while growing the depth and expanse, Entrance to the Sky, Entrance to the Land swirls and resounds, echoing almost like the call of the eider duck in the thick mists of the Icelandic coasts. Side two begins with Pulsing Blood and Spit : a groaning, effulgent call to the darkness. Vocals are present, watery, and limbic, spoken more than sung, lilting slightly in the entwining atmospheres. Unfortunately, they are also quite indecipherable though I can only assume they are possessed by the words included in the cassette liner jacket

Common Eider Somateria mollissima. Though most people probably have only heard of eiders in relation to eiderdown pillows, the Common Eider is a bird well worth getting to know for more than its warm, insulating feathers. King Eider are more widespread than either Steller’s Eider or Spectacled Eider but not as common as, well, Common Eider. They breed across the tundra in Asia, Europe, and North America and winter in similar areas to Common Eider (coastal rocky shorelines), but Common Eider is more likely further south. So, if one is going to see any eider one is going to see Common Eider, which only makes sense

The common eider is the southernmost breeding eider, with a nesting range extending from Sitka in Southeast Alaska along the entire coast into Arctic Canada. Small colonies are found in the Kodiak harbor and along Homer Spit. Common eiders nest near driftwood or clumps of grass on barrier islands, sandy beaches, and on islands in tundra ponds, often in association with gull colonies. King eiders have a circumpolar distribution with about 10,000 breeding in Alaska. The center of breeding abundance in Alaska is along the eastern half of the Beaufort Sea coast, but king eiders are much more abundant in the Canadian Arctic islands. Nearly one-half million king eiders migrate through the Beaufort Sea, arriving on breeding areas as early as April 3 at Point Barrow, but most birds do not arrive until May.
