Anni Hogan - Mountain

from the labels press release
"Mountain' is an artistic collaboration between musicians Anni Hogan, Robert Strachan and Itchy Ear, film maker Bob Wass and mountaineer Cathy O'Dowd. Hogan and Itchy Ear originally worked on a series of piano pieces inspired by Rene Daumal's 'Mount Analogue' and the superior wisdom of mountains, using O'Dowds Himalayan conquests for particular authentic inspiration. Robert and Anni used these pieces and the Himalayan peaks as a template for painting a soundwave soundscape around the piano compositions."

This is my nomination. I don't listen to a whole lot of experimental/avant-garde music but I really like this album.

Here's what wikipedia say about this guy:

Due to my total lack of any experience with this genre, I voted for Do Not Eat on account of the amusing name. Don't let me down, crazy japanese no-wave!

Alright, the winner of this week's round of voting is Anni Hogan's Mountain. You have a week to listen to it, and then we'll proceed with the discussion of it.
