SALTINGS is a pastoral-horror-soundscape project, founded by Irish-born composer Andrew Cooke. Working by himself or collaborating with others, Andrew draws on the unsettling literary influences of authors like M.R. James and W.G. Sebald to tentatively create audio-worlds of controlled darkness; hushed plateaux of eerie tranquillity and black horizons full of whispering, half-dreamed creatures... which are also liable to veer into cascading noise and unrepentant drone.
