Voices Of The Gulf Islands

by Mark Brennan



If you have ever stepped foot on one of British Columbia's Gulf Islands you will understand the charm, tranquility and uniqueness of these special places, Islands anywhere seem to evoke a gentleness.

When I first went to Quadra and Saltspring Islands, this is what I felt, they each have a timeless quality, where deliberate slowness seeps out of such places.

Both islands also have some very unique sounds and while I had time to sample the islands culture my main reason for visiting was to search out the rich soundscapes of their many hidden wild gems. 'Voices Of The Gulf Islands' is the best of many hours of recordings from Saltspring and Quadra Islands nestled between British Columbia's mainland and Vancouver Island.

The album will take you from high mountain tops to sheltered coves, an old growth forest ravine and a rainy dreamy wetland. Many of the sounds contain water in its many states, lazy swells, bubbling brooks, rain or a calming cove at first light. I hope you enjoy this album as much I did recording it!
