Aural Films is proud to present "Recollecting the Snow" by Scott Lawlor, featuring Rebekkah Hilgraves. Read Scott Lawlor's description of the concept album he's created for this release:
After reading an article by Peter Stark called "As Freezing Persons
Recollect the Snow-First Chill-Then Stupor-Then the Letting Go: The cold hard facts of freezing to death" (www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-adventure/As-Freezing-Persons-Recollect-the-Snow--First-Chill--Then-Stupor--Then-the-Letting-Go.html
), I thought this would make a great concept for an ambient piece.
I contacted Peter and told him of my interest to create a concept based on his work and he gave me the go-ahead to get a reading of the article.
released January 5, 2015
I utilized sound effects from the freesound project and the following
Kyster, Mbacharach, Ryding, phenoxy, zimbot, nikitralala, jc144940, Adam_N, Dariachic, cobratronik, tagigobaso, mitchellsounds and Omar Alvarado. My thanks to all of them for providing field recordings for artists to use in their projects.
I'd also like to give special thanks to Rebekkah Hilgraves who provided a great narration of the article by Peter and for suggesting the title of the track. Voice/narration recorded at RadHaus US (radhaus.us
While she was playing this on her "At Water's Edge" program last year, long before it was released, a listener commented that hearing this was making him feel so cold that he'd have to wait until the summer to finish hearing it.
This story gives a whole new meaning to the word "chilling". Be sure to get a blanket out while listening to this narrative; you'll need the insulation.
It was a lot of fun putting this project together and I hope you enjoy the
sonic journey presented here.
