This album consists almost entirely of sounds from the farm way up north in Swedish Northbothnia (Norrbotten), where we live with a few horses, a cat, the fox Yannis who streaks by in winter nights, bears who keep out of sight, moose and a lot of reindeer (There are a few recorded instances from around the village too) Grandchildren visit, and the good attitude of neighbors tell a tale of living on the brink in a trying climate in the winter, but with sun up all night in the summer. Of course I've worked with many of the sounds before assigning them their positions in this composition!
The farm sits outside the village of Niemisel, which explains the title of the work.
