This is a compilation about a small beach in Sydney , Australia called Burning Palms.
Accessible only on foot, It is the home of black cockatoos, many palm trees and a natural figure eight rock pool. Most contributers haven't been there. For them this compilation has been a process of imagination and fantasy, for others it has been one of nostalgia, remembering and forgetting.
This compilation is about the process of imbuing a place with meaning, a common theme in ambient music. But rather than aiming to uncover some inner essence of the landscape this compilation looks at how this act can be just as much a work of fiction as one of fact.
Tracks by: Broken Chip, Savaran, Kate Carr, Sublamp, All N4tural, Manrico Montero, Adam WIlliams, Darren McClure, Every Bolt Rumbling.
Burning Palms is a free download, but if you like itplease consider donating a small amount to help cover the mastering costs.

''Another fine ambient compilation comes by way of Flaming Pines, the netlabel run by Sydney, Australia-based artist Kate Carr,'' -- Textura.
"The unwillingness to deliver a cohesive theme besides the atmospheric sense of place with slight hints of menace luring around the edges of the ambience makes it an intriguing compilation." -- Cyclic Defrost
