The Memory Room is a joint release by Meakusma and Ash International. The Album documents the field recording Workshop led by Mike Harding and Chris Watson that took place during the 2018 Meakusma Festival. Harding, Watson and the seven participants of the workshop recorded the unique ambience of the High Fens - Eifel Nature Park during pre-dawn and post-sunset sessions, manifesting the hidden sonic world available to them with contact microphones. The recording sessions quickly turned into a labor of love for all participants and the results are stunning, unearthing a deeply emotive and detailed recorded impression of the High Fens.
CD comes in a shrink-wrapped digipak and includes a 26-page booklet with pictures from the High Fens.
