Lutnahimat is a London-based project, formed in 2002 by composer/sound sculptor Ian S. After studying music technology in London, Ian has experimented with numerous acoustic instruments including strings, woodwind, brass free-reed and prepared instruments. Not wholly satisfied with the sounds available, he has also built several electronic instruments from scratch and created a variety of recording techniques to go with them. Lutnahimat has been working on soundtracks for short films, sound installations and exhibitions as well as releasing several limited editions on labels such as Entra'cte and EE Tapes. After concentrating at length on acoustic recordings Lutnahimat is currently working on minimal electronic music using purpose-built devices and self-written signal processing programs. For Erosions Lutnahimat used some of these instruments as well sound samples recorded in India and Cameroon.
