Strandloper by Oli Bailey
Strandloper is a solo release by Oli Bailey on the UK based Menk! Recordings label.

Strandloper was recorded over several early morning sessions in the Autumn of 2018. In Brighton, UK.
The tracks are underpinned by field recordings from remote locations in Iceland, Bavaria, Scotland, Canada and England. These are interpolated with samples from shamanic rituals obscure folk instruments, down-sampled, reduced and rendered into faded soundscapes.
The recordings were then overlaid with live takes using the Buchla Music Easel and Ciat-Lombarde Cocoquantus.
