Geir Jenssen - Cho Oyu 8201m- Field Recordings from Tibet [Ash International - 2007]

Cho Oyu 8201m sees Geir Jensse, of  electroinc ambient/ project Biosphere, Collecting together, manipulation and editing of sound recordings from his trip up Cho Oyu in Tibet- the sixth highest mountain in the world.

Each track follows a leg of the jouney with a few minutes of related sounds and music. Jenssen skilful takes ethnic music, radio jingles and all manner of harmonic audio sounds as a back bone for  most of the track, then adds on top all manner of environmental sound be it; wind,animals or people- in a effective and entertaining manner. Making each piece a musically sound work in it’s own right and not just purely unedited field records. So as a result this is replayable and enjoyable more than simple field recording cd. It all comes in a wonderful oversize cd wallet with a full colour 12 page booklet detailing his trip with both pictures & text . On the back of  the wallet is a map of the area covered, giving the feeling that real thought has gone into the booklet and wallet, much like the sound and music.

A worthwhile mix of field recordings, ambience and interesting audio editing- that really acts as a audio dairy to Jenssen trip and a enjoyble album to boot. Let’s hope he decides to present his futuer trips in a simlar manner.
