An enigmatic new record from Michael Northam* tracing a reorientation process of moving from over a decade of nomadic life across Europe (2001-2013) to settling into rural life in the unique bioregion that is Southern Oregon. The tracks are improvisations recorded in distinct locations, each carrying a certain feeling-seed of this movement between September 2012 and September 2013. From resplendent Villa Waldberta in Bavaria to a humble shack along South Pacific Highway in Jackson County, Oregon. Guided by a series of visionary experiences regarding time, space and ever waking-up process of the everyday. These recordings transmit through their vibrations an ever shifting reorientation that everyone must learn to navigate one day or another…

*Michael Northam is an American sound artist who lives the mountains of southern Oregon. Michael’s focus with sound and installations is to capture the inexplicable sensation of ‘experience’ as manifested in the medium of sound. This is realized through organic, intuitive sound works in the form of performances, site specific works, compositions and installations.

He has collaborated with many artists throughout his two decade career and has produced works in several different countries. He has composed work for over 20 CDs published internationally. Michael is not an instrumentalist, but a careful listener and painstaking studio craftsman, whose work can range from combining hundreds of layers of material into a complex kaleidoscopic soundscape, or finding sustained moments of field recordings for intricate and intimate interior experiences of listening.
