Hailing from the archipelago of Orkney in Scotland, the contemporary composer and multi-instrumentalist Erland Cooper returns to its landscape and people as a source of inspiration for his new album Hether Blether. The album, named after a hidden island in folklore, looks to the past through the stories of the island and to the present and future through its people.

Listen to the first track on the album, ‘Longhope’ featuring new poetry by John Burnside, written after a trip to Orkney with Erland (documented on the BBC Radio 4 programme, Wild Music), as well as spoken word from the award winning musician Kathryn Joseph and ambient tape and modular synth work from Hiroshi Ebina, the track draws us into Erland’s world with a slow moving portrait video directed by long time collaborator Alex Kozobolis.
