Aurora Borealis clip from northern Norway
NOTE: TURN THE HD BUTTON ON (TOP RIGHT OF MONITOR) TO WATCH IN HIGH DEFINITION.
Aurora Borealis (The Northern Lights) – shot in northern Norway in February 2010. This is the first time this material has been available on-line. The grainy quality of the footage is due to the extreme difficulty of capturing this phenomenon on camera. We saw this display on the first night we were there – in the mountains a long drive north east of Tromso, and around an hour’s snow mobile ride from the nearest habitation. Then there was nothing more for the rest of the trip but that one night was amazing. It had been -42c a week before we arrived but only dropped to around -20c when we were there.
The soundscape is from atmospheres that came from The Rooms sessions.
