Lake From The Louvers

James Rushford

Recorded during a stay at La Becque, this album draws inspiration from the play of shadow and light on both the surface of the lake and the window through which Australian composer James Rushford viewed this lacustrine landscape. While the lake is itself at times directly audible in the form of field recordings, the image suggested by the record’s title is less directly represented than translated into sonic structures inspired, as Rushford explains, by “the passing of shadow through a fixed space”.
