ian christy Captures the epic scale, beauty, and contemplation of the BC shoreline perfectly. All the things that draw my family to the Ucluelet shoreline each winter, or make long runs in the hazy rain along the North Shore coastline inspiring come forth in this long, wonderful composition. A fine companion to Room Tones, my personal favorite from this artist.

about

Landscape Compositions based on recordings made around the signal hill area on the Avalon Peninsula.
V01AAA is an active amateur radio repeater located inside Cabot Tower on signal hill. The history of radio, and of transmission, is wound up tightly with the identity of the area. On 12 December 1901, the first transatlantic wireless transmission was received here by Guglielmo Marconi in an abandoned fever and Diphtheria hospital, which has since been destroyed by fire. The transmission, in Morse code, originated from his Poldhu Wireless Station, Cornwall, UK. It was not a blind test - Marconi knew in advance to listen for a repetitive signal of three clicks, signifying the Morse code letter 'S'. The clicks were reported to have been heard faintly and sporadically.
