(2015/Dust To Digital) 13 tracks. Archival, appalacian field recordings arranged with newly-composed music by Brian Harnetty. - The third in composer and artist
Brian Harnetty's series of recording projects stemming from the Berea
College Appalachian Sound Archives, Rawhead & Bloodybones combines
samples of music and folk tales with live instruments. The historic
archival recordings of children recounting folk tales were made by
Leonard Roberts in the 1940s and '50s. The combination of the children's
youthful voices and the often gruesome stories they tell offers a
striking and dramatic contrast. These recordings, along with other
archival samples from Berea, are woven into a larger musical world, with
additional instrumental parts added as a counterpoint to the stories.
Working closely with archivists, historians, musicians, and the families
of those sampled, Rawhead & Bloodybones respectfully
re-contextualizes traditional music and folk tales into a unique,
beautiful, playful, and haunting whole. Six-panel foldout case.
