Soundscape Røst – Spaces and Species Vol I | Elin Már Øyen Vister
I haven’t visited the Røst archipelago, located 100 km west of northern Norway, but Elin Már Øyen Vister’s collection of soundscapes from the area grants me a fairly strong impression of what it would be like to do so. As I play the vinyl album (issued in a 300-copy run) and read the accompanying notes for its twelve pieces, the site’s soundworld comes vividly to life as I picture myself on one of its islands surrounded by site-specific birds flooding the air with vocalizations.
