Kaiser, Henry / David Lindley - Music for Werner Herzog's Encounters At the End of the World CD

SKU Fractal 96546
This is the previously unavailable music that was made for the documentary. It presents a wide range of guitar-oriented works by two great musicians whose breadth of work on the guitar is quite extensive. There's lots of acoustic stuff with an Americana feel, spacey, electric instrumentals, interesting instruments like cümbüs, cittern, oud, kabosy and more, and guest shots from other musicians as well.

Henry is best known as an experimental guitarist, but he has a wide range of abilities in many different styles, and while David is best known as Linda Ronstadt's musical directly for decades, he also has extensive studio credits, going all the way back to original 60s psychedelic band, Kaleidoscope.

Not really a typical album from either Henry or David, but a typically great one! Recommended!

"Encounters at the End of the World is a 2007 American documentary film by Werner Herzog. The film studies people and places in Antarctica. Herzog and cinematographer Peter Zeitlinger go to Antarctica to meet people who live and work there, and to capture footage of the continent's unique locations. Herzog's voiceover narration explains that his film will not be a typical Antarctica film about "fluffy penguins," but will explore the dreams of the people and the landscape. They begin at McMurdo Station and interview some maintenance and support workers, as well as iceberg geologist Douglas MacAyeal. They travel next to a nearby seal camp supervised by zoologist Olav Oftedal. Next they join the film's composer/producer, research diver Henry Kaiser at his diving camp, and interview cell biologist Samuel Bowser and zoologist Jan Pawlowski. Kaiser and Bowser stage a rooftop guitar concert."-Wikipedia
