Farthest North is the result of a musical collaboration between Canada's Parhelion and Australian sound artist Zac Keiller. The idea originated while they both were treading similar thematic ground with their individual projects, mainly that of using the far north as an artistic muse. The end result of that effort is a record that focuses on capturing the essence of this extreme landscape, eschewing the romantic and focusing on the stark, cold immensity and volatility of a place located at the ends of the world. Teetering between the hauntingly sparse and the occasionally chaotically dense, the music attempts to mirror the landscape's primitive elements. The CD comes with a DVD of arctic scenes mixed with album excerpts for a unique audio/visual experience.
