Placement: Marine Africa


'Overflights and remote landings amongst the great continent's myriad water systems'.


Presented as a series of skimming flights and dusty Landings, this album celebrates Africa's wondrous rivers, lakes, swamps and adjoining seas, as seen from both a light aircraft's eye view and a grounded and more magnified detail. The multi-layered and differently charactered tracks are deliberately arranged to be contrasting, so as to offer a dappled patina across the duration of the album and a continental overview at it's broadest sweep. Each subdividing track representing a portion or moment of discovery within that wider picture, from the muddy water hole to the Cape.

Note: Although the term 'marine' is more properly taken to relate exclusively to the sea, here for reasons of brevity and a little poetic licence, Placement use it to indicate all aquatic environments, be they freshwater, coastal or brackish.

Extra tracks;

17. Threading Warm Deltas
18. Refraction In Tropical Clouds

These previously unreleased tracks were made during the original Marine Africa sessions and are exclusive to this Lime Green Yellow edition.

Total running time; 49:42

Thank you for your interest in this release.
We hope you enjoy it!
