Opera North presents a new sound installation by sound recordist Chris Watson which focuses on the mythical island of Hy Brasil which lies off the west coast of Ireland.
Northern Latitudes was inspired by two field recordings made by Chris Watson for a CD called ‘The Sea Ice Border’. It comprises of two recordings: 89 24 N Below and 89 24 N Above. Both feature in the mix at the beginning and end. The music in between was chosen based on the feel of those sounds.
