about

This is a collection of field recordings made on Ofu, Olosega, and Tutuila islands in American Samoa. These were captured on my travels over the last ten years.

Most of these have never been heard by anyone other than myself and have languished in my archives since being recorded.

The vibe of these tracks varies wildly, from the near silence of "Ili'ili 3am" to the pounding, close-miked waves of "High Tide At To'aga" to the humming electronic aitu of “Music From An Empty Room” -- like traveling to Ofu itself, this journey will not always be a passive one!

Tracks 8-10 were previously released on other projects of mine and have been augmented with electronics and/or creative mixing. Everything has been newly remastered for this release.
