Northern Winds (2000)15:02
The sound world of Northern Winds is influenced by a number of distant but nevertheless vivid recollections from my first trek in the Alps, at the age of five: The breadth and majesty of the landscape; the brightness of the light and the sharpness of the temperature when the sun hid behind nearby rocks; the strange feeling of looking down at the clouds, which we had surpassed in our ascent to the top; most of all, the astonishment and excitement that I felt when I spotted a gigantic glider, appearing smoothly and mysteriously below us out of the mist. To the child I was, that huge aircraft was inexplicably silent — Northern Winds is the a-posteriori soundtrack of that alpine trip, a belated attempt to recreate the original memory of the north wind that had hit my young eardrums, through the sounds and the music I am now able to imagine and create.
