SwampLakeCity by Ed Mundio is Naviar's final release of 2019. It's also the final chapter of our releases focused on the sonic exploration of the environment, after Audio Obscura's "Gathering Silence" and Larbjo's "Transits and Passages".

"In making this project I became aware that I have perhaps mistakenly and unconsciously always been seeking pristine recordings of pristine environments yet this is not the usual sonic world around myself or most of us…So I have accepted and embraced the sonic ecology that surrounds me and have built on these multi-layered environments.

I have also aimed to sonically layer different eras and ages of landscape simultaneously; the sonic realisation of the past present and future in one moment.

On the macro and micro scale any living environment, (ecosystem, flora and fauna) is always a dynamic process -constant change and transitions between complexity and simplicity and even between differing types of landforms and ecosystems entirely- thus oceans lakes swamps forests and cities could occur in the same place in any order over time and of course human interference and intervention can result in symbiotic mutual nurturing, idealistic but natural abundance or sadly more commonly ever more rapid destruction."
