Alpacas and streams in Rataryd 2011-11-19

Last weekend I spent at my parents in laws house located in a small village called Rataryd deep in them woods of Småland.
When I’m there so I always try to take this opportunity to make some field recordings. It’s fun to be able to do some recordings of natural sounds and sounds of the countryside.

We spent some time in the stables with their alpacas. There is no special social animals but if you drew them with some carrots they could not resist to come and taste a bit.

On the way home from the barn we passed a small stream whose sound I took the opportunity to record some samples from.

Ljuset Kommer Aldrig Åter

On 27th of October I released the first record on my newly started label Funeral Fog Records.
Ljuset Kommer Aldrig Åter is the name of the album and it is produced by me under the psedonum Jurko Haltuu.
Here are some facts about the release:

Ljuset Kommer Aldrig Åter (The Light Will Never Return) is a 44 minutes and 6 seconds long piece of music, composed, looped and processed by me ( Jurko Haltuu). All sounds are based on a 2 minute and 47 seconds long field recording made by my friend Magnus Natt och Dag in his car just outside Halmstad on the Swedish west coast. Sunday 28 August 2011.

On release day, I made a very intimate gig at the tiny but oh so nice gallery Makeriet driven by some friends of mine here in Malmo.
The gig went really well and I am very pleased with how the sound became established in this small room, about 20-25 square meters.
