about

Nordlig Vinter is a suite of compositions for percussion and iOS devices created by Charles Martin while living in Piteå, near the Arctic circle in northern Sweden from 2011 to 2012. Harshly cut field recordings reflect the dry, icy environment while minimal jazz inspired melodies on vibraphone and marimba evoke the quiet beauty of such a strange place.

The iOS devices used in the recordings run two native iOS apps, "Snow Music" and "Nordlig Vinter", both created using Pure Data and libpd and both available for free on the App Store.

Special thanks to the other performers on the album - some of my biggest inspirations - Anders Åstrand, Evaristo Aguilar, and Christina Hopgood. Thanks also to my collaborators in Piteå who supported this work: Maria Finkelmeier, Jacob Remington and Daniel Saur.
