€22,95
  • Availability:

Experimental musicians Francesco Fabris and Ben Frost from Reykjavík, Iceland released this joint record in March 2023 from the experimental label room3 in Brisbane, Australia.

Contains field recordings made at the Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland - 7 natural drone songs. DL code included.Out of print.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"Fixed, permanent, nothing for anyone, at any time.

Like we think it's a stable planet, this planet isn't.The fine-grained crust, the zone in which we sit and are of primary concern, exists as an unobtrusive veil, obscuring dynamic seismic disturbances.

But there are moments when ruptures occur.Pressure from within pushes to and through the earth's surface, simultaneously creating destruction and pristine landscapes.Geological time is condensed, and world-building is visible and audible in bohemian and provocative detail.

Volcanic eruptions, such as those captured by Francesco Fabris and Ben Frost at Vakning, are a true testament to the geology of the living Earth.Taken at close range, these records exist at nodes where liquid rock becomes solid.The moment of transformation, the moment of annihilation and the moment of creation are often captured all at once.

These are dynamic, freewheeling, living physical planetary records. "

Text excerpt by Lawrence English:

"...these volcanic ruptures, such as those captured on Vakning by Francesco Fabris and Ben Frost, speak to the very living geology of Earth. These recordings, captured at close range, exist at a nexus where liquid rock becomes solid. of obliteration and of creation, often all at once.

These are recordings of a living, material planet, dynamic and unrestrained."
