"This anthology of field recordings brings together some of the audio memories from Harrold Roeland’s journey across Australia and New Zealand. A travelogue of sorts, this collection immerses the listener in the various soundscapes of the Antipodies. As we follow in Roeland’s footsteps we find ourselves shifting between the rural and the urban, creating a balanced and realistic portrait of these two remarkable countries. From a boarding call at Hobart Airport to a tranquil dawn chorus on Stewart Island, these recordings present a fascinating, comprehensive and highly personal overview of a voyage from the Netherlands to the other side of the world."
