This release comprises two different realisations of Golden Sunset, Blue Rain, each just over half an hour in duration: ‘Lower World, Parts 1-10’ (tracks 1-10) and ‘Sky Cry, Parts 1-10’ (tracks 11-20). In ‘Lower World, Parts 1-10’, additional field recordings are introduced into the piece, including the sounds of walking through Delamere Forest, Cheshire and walking over rocks in Lud’s Church, Staffordshire. Multi-tracked melodicas and additional digital signal processing effects augment the existing Golden Sunset, Blue Rain sound world. In ‘Sky Cry, Parts 1-10’, the vocal chanting is time-stretched and sent through spectral filter delays. Additional vocals are included, along with the powerful sound of a thunderstorm, the melancholic sound of an Irish low D whistle and the meditative sounds of a rain stick and a shruti box.

Number of tracks: 20

Duration: 63’36”

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