BODIES OF WATER by Institute of Landscape and Urban Studies

Sold out 150.00

This box set contains three albums – Melting Landscapes, Dammed Landscapes and Buried Landscapes – that together trace the dramatic metamorphosis of water. Ranging from the receding tongue of the Morteratsch glacier in Engadine to the guzzling turbines of the Punt Dal Gall hydroelectric dam and the disgorging reservoir chambers of Zurich, the collectively recorded field recordings combine to paint a panorama of a fading epoch when water was still treated as a naturally inexhaustible element.
