In June of 2011, Piiptsjilling was part of the resicency project Seeljocht, a project of the Into the Great Wide Open Festival on the island Vlieland. The aim was to record a track inspired by the environment and our experiences there.
Piiptsjilling tracks are always improvised on the spot, which is the only way we can work. So instead of focussing on one composition we ended up with multiple hours of material. I'm sure Martin Heyne, who was recording, thought it was quite strange... before playing we don't really speak much. We just start. And it always works. This new CD on Midira proves that again.
released February 20, 2014
