The Path Described (3LEAVES, December 2013; CD digipack)

It's recorded beautifully and I can only assume that listeners engaged in the art of field recordings will enjoy it quite a bit. - Just outside

The Path Described is a sonic souvenir of a specific Australian peninsula, an evocative recreation of aural memory, and a universal invitation. The world beckons. An open window is not enough. - a closer listen

Album preview:



There is an otherworldly quality to the field recordings of Tristan Louth-Robins, which is, of course, entirely the wrong word. They are intrinsically of this world. Within them we may distinguish a familiar birdsong or aural backdrop, the usual but usually unregarded mutterings of the world as it is – a messy, frontier place full of strange cohabitants, marked by vibrant incongruences. And, yet, something not quite of this world pertains. Nostalgia – a remembrance of things past – is an important emotion for Louth-Robins, and it may be this that infuses these recordings with an essence that takes the listener beyond the quotidian. There is no mistaking Louth-Robins’ affinity with the places he documents, shaped by ineradicable personal connections with the landscapes of South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula. If these recordings take us back to the natural world, to the coastlines and cliffs and epic ranges and waterways for which the region is noted, then they also transport us back in time. They open a window not only onto a realm rich with human activity thousands of years before the name of a Frenchman was assigned to it, but also onto the story of an individual and how he first heard the world around him. - Ben Brooker
