Souvenirs van de Woeste Grond is a project initiated by Landscape Overijssel and Kunstenlab. In this project two artists collected stories about the countryside landscape in order to save them from obscurity. In the second phase of the project eight different artists make a souvenir based on the collected stories. These souvenirs are available at different locations in the province of Overijssel. You can find more information at www.souvenirsvandewoestegrond.nl.
This CD is one of those eight souvenirs and is released by Esc.rec. in a limited edition, with a handmade cover by Harco Rutgers. But it's also available as a digital download, if you prefer that.
This is a release with specially composed music by several artists, selected by Harco Rutgers, in the context of the project ‘Souvenirs van de Woeste Grond’. The six compositions are based on the stories collected by Heidi Linck about Losser and it’s surroundings. The release itself is also based on one of those stories.
Introductions to the stories that form the basis for this release can be found in the booklet accompanying the limited release. They can be read in their entirety at www.souvenirsvandewoestegrond.nl (in Dutch).
The six artists who composed a track for this compilation are: Gluid, Gareth Davis, Machinefabriek, Wouter van Veldhoven, Reinier van Houdt and Weerthof.
