Tundra Atmos

Part of the Spitfire Labs Range

Whilst making the launch video for Albion V Tundra, our ultra-quiet, epic orchestral adventure, we wanted to capture the sounds of the different locations we visited, all near-silent in their own way. We have committed to tape the sounds of volcanic hinterlands in Iceland, where the wind didn’t sound like it usually does without any vegetation to breathe through, a lapping Scottish loch and the extraordinary reverberant and utterly quiet environment of an Estonian forest, plus more. Harry has expertly captured these magical environments on what was a very magical journey.
