Manu Delago – Parasol Peak
Musicians ascend the Alps with instruments in order to record and perform while surrounded by the elements. Delago comments: “Of course performing on acoustic instruments has been done for thousands of years, so I wanted to add an extra component – nature, or more precisely the Alps. I wanted to utilise our surroundings by incorporating lots of percussion sounds like trees, water, little rocks as well as the gear that we were carrying”.
Featuring a live musical performance.
