Nico Walser Pure listening pleasure. What a great concept. I'm an admirer of his work since the "Cue" album. Favorite track: Sunshower at Sandy Island.

kralin Great concept executed with considerable style. Pekler has put together an impressive body of work. Perfect escapist music during lockdown - one can imagine oneself marooned on one of these phantom islands of the imagination.

If you enjoyed this - which I'm sure you will - check out Oyvind Torvund's wonderful 'The Exotica Album' on Hubro. It complements this album perfectly.

Russell Dixon Nautical chart music for islands that may or may not exist.

'it is my firm opinion that no such island is above water, if it ever was' - Charles Duncan 1791.
Favorite track: Sunshower at Sandy Island.

about

Phantom islands are islands that appeared on historical maps but never actually existed. The status of these artefacts of European colonial expansion from the 15th to the 19th century oscillates between cartographic fact and maritime fiction. Sounds From Phantom Islands interprets and presents these imaginations as a quasi-ethnographic catalog of music and synthetic field recordings. The pieces on this album are based on recordings made for Phantom Islands - A Sonic Atlas, an online interactive map developed with cultural anthropologist Stefanie Kiwi Menrath.
