Rob Gould's 2003 album "Wookey" is the soundtrack to another of Gavin Newman's incredible adventure documentaries called Wookey Exposed. It tracks the history and atmosphere of one of Britain's premiere showcaves and documents the first ever filmed journey into the underwater worlds of uncharted, flooded chambers.
The main body of the Wookey album (the film score itself) was recorded digitally at Robs home studio in Buxton, UK in April 2003. Additional recordings were done over the following three weeks after which the completed work was taken to Jason Gilman's where his legendary guitar parts were added in early May. The 21 track album also features contributions from talented vocalist Fiona Ford.
The Wookey cd is currently available from this website.
