Handful of Earth is an ongoing visual exploration of man’s connection to his living environment and day-to-day life in mountain areas.

„Even as a child, I was fascinated with the mysterious atmosphere of mountain scenery. In 2014 I started to volunteer for a local NGO, and my instinctive drive to explore led me back to them. I kept the pictures taken during my mountain hikes for about two years. Then the puzzle behind the project started to take shape. To me, a place can have a certain sound of its own, which is why I tried to put into pictures emotions generated by music. Handful of Earth is both the first part of this project and the title of an album combining traditional and contemporary music. Its inspiration comes from genres like ambient, electroacoustic and experimental music.”

Sarah Parsons condenses video stills and fragments from the songs’ lyrics into a 208-page booklet. A visual exploration in search of this material’s manifold nuances & defining essence.

Klara Ravat’s room scent questions how we perceive the space around us. To be applied while listening to the music, the scent triggers different sensations as ‘Tales of Another Felt Sense of Self’ evolves, finally leaving an afterglow when the work ends & ambient noise reclaims the room.

Booklet designed by Sarah Parsons, Room Scent developed by Klara Ravat.

Includes unlimited streaming of Tales Of Another Felt Sense Of Self via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
