Birds of Naukan

darkcasey Birds of Naukan is a pleasing album, probably containing the most mouth-harp of anything I’ve ever listened to, but that’s no bad thing. The instruments and field-recordings used in each track really do create a feeling of an ancient culture in an even more ancient land. Who needs mind-numbing Xmas music, when you can have the stark beauty of the Russian tundra filled with the voices of the ghosts who once lived there. Favorite track: Nuneangan.

about

Together with the labels NEBOSVOD and ΠΑΝΘΕΟΝ we're glad to present the proper reissue of the work, first published in 2015 in a small edition of 80 copies. This is a collaboration album recorded by the projects Creation VI and Ugasanie and dedicated to several sacred places of Chukotka, such as the Whale Bone Alley on Yttigran island and a collection of ancient rock engravings on the Pegtymel river. The album was inspired by the documentary "Chukotka: The Coast of Memory" directed by Andris Slapiņš and poems of the Yupik poetess Zoya Nenlyumkina, who was born in the now deserted village of Naukan, which at that time was the easternmost settlement of Eurasia.

Petroglyphs carved on stones along rivers, bird colonies and herds of walruses, whale skulls dug in the coast hundreds of years ago - many images were captured in the sounds of this album. Mouth harps and ocarins, throat singing, field recordings and transparent iridescence of cold creeping ambient, saturated with echoes of shamanistic rituals, cries of bird flocks and songs that the ocean sings to heavens, while playing on coastal pebbles.

Вместе с лейблами НЕБОСВОД и ΠΑΝΘΕΟΝ мы рады представить вашему вниманию полноценное переиздание работы, впервые выпущенной в 2015 году небольшим тиражом 80 копий. Это совместный альбом, записанный проектами Creation VI и Ugasanie и посвящённый нескольким сакральным местам Чукотки, таким как Китовая Аллея на острове Ыттыгран и коллекция древних наскальных рисунков на реке Пегтымель. Альбом был вдохновлён документальным фильмом "Чукотка: берег памяти" режиссёра Андриса Слапиньша и стихами эскимосской поэтессы Зои Ненлюмкиной, родившейся в ныне заброшенном посёлке Наукан, бывшем в то время самым восточным поселением Евразии.

Петроглифы, высеченные на камнях вдоль рек, птичьи базары и стада моржей, китовые черепа, вкопанные в побережье сотни лет назад — многие образы нашли свое запечатление в звуках этого альбома. Варганы и окарины, горловое пение, полевые записи и прозрачные переливы холодного, стелющегося по земле эмбиента, пропитанного отголосками шаманских камланий, криками птичьих стай и песнями, которые океан поёт небесам, играя на прибрежной гальке.
