Eskifjörður is an Icelandic town settled along the East fjords, still between two lively environments. The film relates without images, these spaces became entities. First, it’s the awakening of the earth, living, breathing : an entity sometimes hostile, extends into the landscape to overwhelming the rest. Men are discreet. To remain, they go from the land to the sea, and from the sea to the land, but also to die. The sea is nourishing, bountiful and generous, but it keeps with it these souls and reject these bodies, buried.
Talkingmakesnosense is Dominic Dixon of Glasgow who has been making music in one form or another since he was a child. Most recently, he’s been releasing records on the now sadly defunct Benbecula Records, and now a new album on Rural Colours.
Coruscates consists of four long-form tracks, each tipping past the ten-minute mark.
An edition of 100, CD and cover packaged in a translucent envelope.
The compilation features 12 tracks from some of the globe’s most talented sound-designers. It is a subtly rewarding headphone listen from start to finish; curated and ordered to purposefully induce a state of sleep. Starting off minimally, gradually gathering tone and atmosphere, the experience goes on without ever boiling over or reaching a crescendo. Parts of the album are light and restful whereas traces of it tread darker territory. All in all, the imagery that the album conjurs sits perfectly as a soundtrack to the dreams one experiences during a nights sleep.
