The Linen Club Melodies
Working flax into linen fibers is filled with rhythms. Based on the communal task of flax processing in The Linen Project and recordings made in a shared flax shed, a series of melodies and songs were created.
The Linen Club Melodies is a collaborative project between Marie Ilse Bourlange, Liza Prins, and Bergur Anderson.
The melodies are not intended to be finished pieces but rather to be sung and re-sung while at work, as the flax plant is rippling, breaking, scutching, and heckling into linen strands.
