For a little something ambient and magic, listen to Sydney experimental 5-piece Tangents‘ new 8 minute escape Lake George, the second track taken from forthcoming album New Bodies out June 15 via Temporary Residence Ltd. This one’s good for drifting and dreaming along to, for deep breaths and meditations, and for full soul immersion into a moment’s peace, inspired by an ancient landscape rising and falling to its own beat.
The real Lake George is said to sit on the road between Sydney and Canberra, empty of water for many years until it started to fill again in 2016. This track isn’t the only artwork inspired by the mysterious local wonder. In this story published by ABC Online, choreographer Elizabeth Cameron Dalman says the lake has inspired many artworks, including her own event ‘Weereewa – A Festival of Lake George’.
“Lake George has so many stories about it,” she told ABC. “There have been so many artists inspired to write stories, to do beautiful paintings, to sing about it, to dance about it, to dance on it and with it, and I think this is a wonderful way to celebrate this special place,” she said. “This lake of course is one of the oldest lakes in the world and that in itself is a wonderful thing.
“Just standing on the lake you do feel the power of it. I think we need to understand a little bit more about our natural wonders in Australia.”
