#Advent 3: Vintervann

My third #ADVENTtrack explores the theme of winter.  There are only two notes in this composition, expressing the starkness of Winter.

I’ve always been fascinated by the tides of the season, in particular Winter and how December flows toward the Winter Solstice. Vintervann is the Norwegian word for Winter Tide and I think best describes the bleak beauty of Winter, especially in the northern hemisphere.

The Derenberger Tapes (Short COLD MiX)

The ‘Woodrow Derenberger Interview‘ is a 30 minute audio tape recording of a live interview by Glenn Wilson who worked at WTAP-TV. In the interview Woody Derenberger recounts his encounter with Indrid Cold in Parkersburg West Virginia on November 3rd 1966 at about 4 o’clock in the afternoon.

I’ve always been intrigued by this story; ever since I read John Keel’s book ‘The Mothman Prophecies‘, and saw the 2002 film of the book, starring Richard Gere.  Indrid Cold has become part of modern mytho-culture surrounding ufo conspiracies and the internet is awash with images of the visitor from Lanulos –  the planet that Woody Derenberger claim his unearthly visitor hailed from.

For the last six weeks I have been spent every spare moment working in my makeshift tabletop studio, to compose a dance/EDM track using an audio recording of the original TV interview. You can find a link to the track here:  The Derenberger Tapes (Short COLD MiX)
