VA | Earth Percent
Earth Percent is a charity co-founded by Brian Eno, providing a simple way for the music industry to support the most impactful organisations addressing the climate emergency.
In 2023, they released a 60+ artist compilation, available for a limited period of time. Artists included Robert Smith, Brian Eno, Anna Calvi, Michael Stipe, CHVURCHES and Coldplay.
The track "Atalaya" was released for the occasion and is now available on Bandcamp.
Atalaya is a reflection of the current state of our planet, depicting the tensions within our environments and landscapes through storytelling. This song features field recordings of animals and natural elements captured from three significant locations that hold personal significance for me. These include Hackney, my neighbourhood in London, the east coast of Asturias (northern Spain) and the small town of Seyðisfjörður in Iceland.
Written, composed and produced by Ana Quiroga Olavarrieta, 2023
