This release comprises two different realisations of Golden Sunset, Blue Rain, ‘Flight, Parts 1-11’ (tracks 1-11) and ‘Worlds Apart’ (track 12). In ‘Flight, Parts 1-11’, the listener is introduced to the sound world of Golden Sunset, Blue Rain through the use of handheld percussion (egg shaker, wooden frog and Tibetan singing bowl) layered with multitracked Scottish tin whistles. The tin whistles are pitch shifted, along with the vocal chanting. Field recordings of birdsong are introduced into the soundscape, connecting the listener to nature and Mother Earth. In ‘Worlds Apart’, the soundscape is condensed into an 11.5 minute shamanic soundscape journey. Here, additional types of digital processing are used in the mix, including a pitch drop effects and different types of delay systems from the earlier realisations of the work.

Number of tracks: 12

Duration: 53’52”

[Nicholas Peters – ‘Spiritual Musicker’, performer (Tibetan singing bowl, Scottish tin whistles, vocals, egg shaker, wooden frog percussion, field recordings, live digital signal processing), mixing and mastering]
