Inga-Lill Farstad

If you are in the hunt for this, the latest out of the Eilean Recs sound factory, then you’d better get a wiggle on and fast, as just 6 copies remain of its limited 130 CD press. ‘Einstape’ is the debut solo set from Inga-Lill Farstad from off which we’ve been somewhat taken with the track ‘Skjørlok’. Utilising an array of field recordings and various instruments at her disposal which through the intricate application of loops and overlays, Ms Farstad creates a slow to evolve atmospheric canvas. Sounding like some slowly awakening twilight wilderness, ‘Skjørlok’ is paused in silence and dinked in minimalist murmurs, the glitching clicks, the delicate scratches and the distant fog bound fanfares are collectively gathered to create a sense of the solemn, the forgotten and the remote, something one suspects best experienced through headphones, that way you get the measure of its glacial vastness and sorrowed silent majesty.
