about

Berlin-based NUUK, whose compositions reflect the fragile and ephemeral character of an endangered nature: Melting glaciers, vanishing flora and fauna, and shifting seasonal periods enlisted the collaboration of REALMOREREAL to expand their audio project and make it “more real.”

Together the two teams proposed the use of photos taken from an actual visit to Greenland, to connect the sonic travel with physical travel.

10 photos were transformed into postcards that would become the cover of an album. Before these artifacts of travel would be affixed to the album cover they would also go on their own journey. 10 postcards of each of the 10 photos (100 in total) were sent from REALMOREREAL in Seattle to the duo NUUK in Berlin.

From Berlin they were sent to a few volunteers based in Nuuk, Greenland who received them and completed the journey by returning them to Seattle. Once the journey was completed, each of the postcards was affixed to a limited pressing of 100 vinyl records.

The final product has become an Escher-esque adventure into issues of space, the unusual, and multiple points of view – an audio illusion.

We thank the lovely people from Greenland who supported the project:
