MAPSTATION / PAUL WIRKUS - FOREST FULL OF DRUMS (LP)


"Everything was already there. The trees, the wind, the birds, the muddy soil, the undergrowth, playing children, people taking walks, the distant hum of a motorway and airplanes above. We arrived there as beginners. We had to wait for the right weather, to look for a good spot, to practice patience, to carry the drum kit through the bush and to set it up and start playing and recording. Daylight was all that was needed. It had begun as a fantasy, a vague and simple picture that you carry with you. Derived from the joy of being outside in nature: a drum kit standing in a forest. The forest as a resonating space. A room where you are inside and outside at once. Sometimes it looks like a friendly home and at other times becomes an eerie sea. A space in which the ancient sounds of the world meet the sounds of civilization." (label info) Limited to 400 copies.
