Antarctica: An Absent Presence

161071
Dr Philip Samartzis

Description

This beautiful volume of soundscape compositions, images and words from Philip Samartzis is an invitation to share in a remarkable journey of enquiry.

Antarctica is a paradox of the sublime and prosaic: with its vast expanses of ice, snow and mountains – and traces of human habitation, from weathered huts to abandoned machinery. Samartzis travelled south with the Australian Antarctic Division on several occasions and his recordings of the unique sounds of Antarctica have been used to create soundscape compositions which are meticulously realised on three CDs of the music included in this book.
