• Image of The Swithland Wood Recordings

A 12-inch vinyl EP to celebrate the sounds of nature in Leicestershire. Limited edition of 10 (only 3 left!)

The four soundtracks feature classically trained musicians Rishii Chowdhury (tabla) and Roopa Panesar (sitar), responding to birdsong, with an additional track featuring a live recording of Rishii performing on tabla in Swithland Wood at dawn. The main inspiration for one of the rifts was the ‘Coo Coo Cooo’ of the Wood Pigeon and the loud call of the Green Woodpecker.

Album cover design by Lucy Stevens. Field recordings by Geoff Sample and Lucy Stevens.
