CD was originally published by Semperflorens in 2012. Physical editions are still available directly from the Semperflorens website:

All sounds recorded while on residency in Estonia, 2008. Arranged 2008-2011

Additional sounds made by Felicity Mangan (wire/chimney) and John Grzinich (plates/room - Zeltini, Latvia)

The three tracks on this CD have been arranged from sounds collected while on residency at MoKS in the village of Mooste, Southern Estonia in November 2008. This is not so much a documention of Mooste and its surrounds, but more the by-product of my interaction with, and response to, what I found there. I played with and within what I came across and made no attempt at a distanced objectivity. I can lay no claim to any great or unique insight into the life of the village. As an outsider passing through I fear that would be a little hubristic. Instead, I poked around in empty buildings; crawled around in the debris; sat in cold fields and under bridges; listened to frozen leaves fall on the frozen ground and overheard conversations about what I have no idea. Somehow trying to let it all soak in.

This part of the world has a past that is still physically visible and present. Like everywhere, if you pay attention and/or search hard enough?? Especially as winter set in it had a definite weightiness, life has been and can still be hard. But it is a special place. There is a darkness, but also a very particular calmness and beauty. I hope both these are evident in this piece.

I met people during my stay who all had their various affects on the outcome of this work. Whether through helping me to explore - creating sound together and the many conversations - or by sharing the various domestic necessities. To them I give much thanks.

New TARAB here:

re-contextualised collected sounds and tactile gestures formed into dynamic, psycho-geographic compositions; discarded and found things, crawling around in the dirt, junk, debris, walking aimlessly, scratchy things, decay and most if not all the things he hears and sees; half narratives, visceral sensation, false leads and heightened awareness. ... more
