The abandoned whaling station at Grytviken (on South Georgia) is an industrial ghost-town. Whale-catchers were abandoned there when commercial whaling ended and they are quietly rusting in front of the tanks used to store the whale oil.
The Italia Modial Classic six string is the guitar on this, the introduction and coda are sound-scapes, bowed guitar and a volume pedal replicate whale song, and a ships bell strikes eight-bells at the end. This was another of the 1990 December Demo recordings and was re-recorded appropriately on Halloween 2010.
The images were captured from the South Georgia Webcam (see previous post - This Winterland)
