sample the album:
"This is the first duo album since 2010 by leading British improvisers Rhodri Davies (harp) and John Butcher (saxophone). In January 2014, together with respected musician and sound recordist Chris Watson, they visited Routing Lynn, an area of ancient rock carvings in Northumberland, northern England. In this natural setting, Davies and Butcher played music and Watson recorded. Two months later, at a festival in Gateshead, England, Davies and Butcher performed along with the 4-channel playback of the recording made by Watson in Routing Lynn. The performance is documented on this CD as a single 35-minute track. Powerful and exquisite instrumental sounds blend with the sounds of nature (water, warbling birds) from this area of ancient rock. Davies and Butcher's performance combines with Watson's recording to create a masterpiece!"-Ftarri
