Oak Island EP
"Mid-19th century newspaper stories recount that in 1795, young Donald Daniel McInnis discovered a circular depression on the south eastern end of the island with an adjacent tree which had a tackle block on one of its overhanging branches. McInnis, with the help of friends John Smith and Anthony Vaughan, excavated the depression and discovered a layer of flagstones a few feet below. On the pit walls there were visible markings from a pick. As they dug down they discovered layers of logs at about every ten feet (3 m). They abandoned the excavation at 30 feet (10 m)." - Wikipedia entry for Oak Island.
Here is a lovely pair of ambient tracks from Sackville Nova Scotia's Boy Makes Music. Here he has made a 24 minute soundtrack to Oak Island, a tiny island on the south shore of the province.
This music may not make you think of treasure, but it will definitely make you think of something valuable, long-lost.
