Expansive Raw Soundscape Discovers Beauty

'Music for Werner Herzog's Encounters at the End of the World' reunites two iconic guitar players and composers: Henry Kaiser and David Lindley. LIndley, who is well know for his work with Jackson Browne, has also worked with Ry Cooder, Linda Ronstadt and Bruce Springsteen to name a few, but his wonderfully eccentric side has clearly been encouraged here by Kaiser - as was also evidenced in their venture into Madagascar two decades ago which yielded their series of albums featuring contemporary music from the region.

On 'Encounters'..., a soundtrack to Herzog's documentary about the lives of scientist living and working in Antarctica, Kaiser and Lindley collaborate once again to create something entirely new - an expansive raw landscape, dire isolation juxtaposed to unimaginable beauty and discovery that the film brings to light.

Kaiser plays acoustic and electric guitars, kabosy, ukelele, string and flute samples. Lindley plays weissenborn slide guitars, fiddle, hardanger fiddle, cumbus, oud and cittern. Additional performers include Cheryl Leonard (glass instrument)s, Damon Smith (double bass), William Winant (percussion), Danielle DeGruttolla (cello) and Jen Baker (trombone).
