Additional Information

Dartmoor Journey is a musical journey created from a blend of natural sounds with gently voiced handcrafted flutes, brightly clear rosewood recorders, deeply resonant Slovakian fujara and gracefully melodic traditional whistles. This is a simple and tender reflection on the heart of the natural landscape as experienced in the journey of a river. A powerful reprise of the themes from Nigel’s renowned album The River.

CD2 DARTMOOR: THE SOURCE is spun together from the natural sound recordings made by Nigel over a period of 15 years. Moving from windswept high moorland to rich wooded valleys, this album follows the River Dart from its source to the edges of the Dartmoor National Park. The calls of buzzard, skylark and heron are interlaced with the sounds of streams, rivers and waterfalls, all layered like a musical composition to create an experience that travels across this beautiful landscape.

 

LOCATIONS: High Dartmoor, East Dart & West Dart, Deep Dart Valley.

Album length: 47 minutes
