    Audiological Research and Pathways; Case #7.
    Audiological contents: Twalif X (50.51 minutes).

    Twalif X is an audiological journey through one night; the album was recorded between dusk and dawn on the 12th/13th May 2014 in Robin Wood, Bears Wood, Knott Wood and on Eagle Crag.

    All recordings were captured on one microphone and processed/mixed by N. Racker (samandtheplants / Supernatural Lancashire / Finders Keepers Records) and D. Orphan (Folklore Tapes / Pre-Cert Home Entertainment).

    The imagery for the release was created by N. Racker & D. Orphan using photographs taken during the outing and spliced with original artwork by A Year In The Country.

    …sometimes it is as though when listening to Twalif X that you are almost next to these explorers and you find that you have travelled with them to the otherly, darker corners of the woodlands and landscape. A work that is both calm and quietly unsettling, experimental with bursts of folkloric melody that appears with the coming of the dawn…” (AYITC).

    All editions custom printed and hand-finished by A Year In The Country.
