THE SLOW SLOW AIR – A ST. PATRICK'S DAY SPECIAL

In honour of The Emerald Isle's big day, Fovea Hex is proud to present The Slow Slow Air.

“I've always loved the Slow Airs – to me they are the jewels in the crown of Irish traditional music. As an experiment, I extracted various phrases from a few Slow Airs, slowed them down, and wove them together into a quasi-fugue. My friend Justin Grounds (justingrounds.com) recorded them on baroque violin, and this became The Slow Slow Air. For Skibbereen Arts Week last year, I used The Slow Slow Air as the soundtrack to a little movie I made on my iPhone, gradually, over the course of a year or two – it's a time-lapse collage of scenes from the walk I take every day, up the hill behind the house and through the townland of Aghadown.......”

As a St. Patricks Day Special, we're making The Slow Slow Air available on Bandcamp as a pay-what-you-wish download. You can also watch the movie on our YouTube channel : youtu.be/Gt4N9RHKUX8
