Sparkwood Records invite you to experience a cross-pollinated landscape of wild growing sounds, serene atmospheres and curious timbres seldom heard before now. Located at the dark neck of the woods, we will follow the hidden path...the path of the Blue Pine.
Whether you camp by the ambient springs of MäSän Laakso, on a lofty cliff between the majestic peaks, or entwined among soil and stumps, you are about to embark upon an adventure that will be both memorable and rewarding.
For the seasoned traveller, we encourage you to stick to the marked trail, until the very end (or perhaps we should say "other side") of our guided tour, to be able to fully experience the magnificent nature of Sparkwood and its many secrets.
Safe camping and don’t play with matches!
"Camp Blue Pines provides you with that retreat, but the strange lights continue to shine into the forest, glowing like midnight torches. The new visitors are arriving" - James Catchpole, A Closer Listen
"Camp Blue Pines never feels overly derivative; the listener leaves the campsite impressed by the quality of the work produced by Sparkwood's artists and their talent for mood sculpting of the most evocative kind" - Textura
