The Compass Series presents Nord Rute:
Nord Rute, is the first of four ambisonic projects, inspired by the literary works, drawings and soundscapes of the Sámi multi-artist Nils Aslak Valkeapää. Through his work Nils became an ambassador for the Sámi and was absorbed with the importance of traditions for an indigenous people. Nord Rute takes the Norwegian Sámi as its central theme and was a collaboration between sound artist Ross Adams, electronic music composer Ed Handley, the Sámi poets Synnøve Persen and Ánde Somby, with Joiking and drumming by Ingor Antte Ailu Gaup.
The project had premiere under the Barents Spektakel 2010 festival: http://2010.barentsspektakel.no/nor/articles/6.
