End of Summer captures Jóhann Jóhannsson's journey to the Antarctic Peninsula to discover the calm scenery of a landscape changing seasons, barely influenced or even noticed by humanity. The Super 8 film is a comforting study of a peaceful setting in one of the most crucial and endangered areas of our planet. Accompanied by rich and detailed field recordings of the surroundings, this footage forms a perfect foundation for Jóhannsson's musical compositions, performed together with fellow musicians and friends Hildur Guðnadóttir and Robert A. A. Lowe. The varying use of cello, voice, synthesizer, and electronics creates a listening experience that reflects both the vast beauty of the quiet scenery and the necessary caution of its inhabitants. As if gliding through the steep ice, its rough edges, and the harmonious water movements, organic arrangements patiently devolve into voice-and-electronics-based ambience that adds warmth to the icy environment. The soundtrack to End of Summer is an emotional, enduring listen and a compelling experience. Forming a soundscape as broad as the view that inspired it yet equally heartwarming, the music will slow down time and provide a moment of harmony within times of change. CD contains the soundtrack, and includes a DVD of the film. Laser-cut mini-LP cover with two printed inner sleeves.
