“Seeljocht was the “artist in residence” project of the Into The Great
Wide Open festival 2011. Seeljocht” (Frisian for sea light) is a
research by like minded musicians about the island Vlieland, focussing
on their own interpretation and artistic translation of it. This led to
this soundtrack of the sound of nature, both supported and empowered by Vlielands imagery. Mostly, Seeljocht is a warm ode, in which Vlieland’s nature plays a leading role.”
