More Eremos music...

There's some more Eremos music online at It's called 'Arne' - rather unusual stuff, being based on a land art installation by my friend Hannelie Grobler at the Arne Nature Reserve here in Dorset. I took a series of photographs of this last year, and they have haunted me ever since. Listening to some tracks by CP McDill (Akashic Crow's Nest, Djinnestan) set me thinking, so I took the .jpg files of the photographs, and using some excellent image synthesiser software developed by Victor Khashchanskiy in Russia, I digitally converted these to .wav files. These sound files were then imported into the soft studio, and with a little extra work using LADSPA plug-ins, formed the underlying sound structure of the piece.

I hope you like it!

Hi Mike,

Fascinating!!! compostion. I listened to it before I read your blog describing your source of inspiration.

My impression upon hearing Arne was the sounds of nature, creatures,vegatation, and humans in prayer, as heard in the fourth dimension, and vibrating throughout the universe. It is awesome and very thought provoking.

Thank you for bringing this to life for us. I love it.
