3903: Holyland 2019

Petra traditional flute music reimagined by Nigel Lloyd.

"The reimagined piece is built from a few recordings taken on a trip to Jordan and Israel in 2019. The recordings were mostly from Petra in Jordan during a sound and light show where a man was playing a traditional piece of flute music.

"On the long walk down to the building in the accompanying photograph there was an atmospheric drone echoing through the cleft in the mountain called the Siq. In the piece you can also hear some chattering sparrows and a recording of people at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem."
