Mark Harris – An Idea of North / Learning to Walk
“An Idea of north / learning to walk” is the latest album from UK sound and visual artist Mark Harris. Back in the winter of 2010 he found himself snowed-in due to a unusual flurry of extreme weather.
Out of stock
Finding himself suddenly isolated in his studio he sat down and composed, in one take, the main passage for “An Idea of North” which is very evocative of his sense of isolation and the experienced weather patterns. Taking this passage as a jumping off point for further improvisations, which in Harris’ words “seamlessly merge together to give the impression of a journey through various environments / landscapes (both physical and emotional) gradually moving from the familiar to the more extreme / isolated and ‘darker’ spaces and then gradually returning ‘home’ at the end of the piece”.
“An Idea of north / learning to walk” is Mastered by Bobby Bird (Higher Intelligence Agency) and is a highly recommended album for people that enjoy long form works of glacial Ambient and Electro-acoustic intimacy.
