Music for gardening
Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje og Lasse Marhaug have released an album to inspire people to do some gardening. On "Music for gardening" (Pica Disk 2009), you get voice and electronics, and lots of the things you´ll find in the garden, like cats complaining ("Complaints won´t help"), dogs barking ("Call in the dogs") and birds singing ("Like a prayer"). Lots of fun, but I won´t work in the garden (until I have to).
The album cover is great, with illustrations by Si Clark.
"Music for gardening" is number four in a row of albums meant to describe or inspire certain activities: Gardening, faking, loving and shopping. On the back cover of the shopping album you will see they have been doing some serious research too.
"Music for faking" (C3R 2004)
"Music for loving" (Bottrop-boy 2004)
"Music for shopping" (LP limited to 300, Synesthetic 2003).
