Hail Of Arrows

by Hail Of Arrows

  • Hail Of Arrows - Hail Of Harrows Double Cassette Edition of 100 copies

    Gavin Russom presents his new project ‘Hail Of Arrows’, an uncompromising four-part synth drone odysessy about birds of prey reclaiming Manhattan Island and creating a civilization in the leftover buildings and landscape, free from human interference. Released on limited double cassette, this is Gavin Russom at his most bold and audacious, recalling his previous benchmark collaborative work "The Days of Mars" for breathless imagination.

    Gavin Russom on HAIL OF ARROWS

    "Conceptually Hail of Arrows was inspired by living in far uptown manhattan (a wilder part of the city in many ways) and this item from the parks department about falcons re-settling in the urban environment, especially atop the nearby George Washington Bridge): www.nycgovparks.org/parks/fortwashi…ighlights/12810
    This idea gelled in my mind with the ideas most elegantly captured in the 1981 film "Wolfen": www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CVtWfYOdbg and led me to create these 4 sonic visualisations.
