Like several longform Halifaxian pieces before it, Night's Moisture is an experiment in depth and immersion. Taking cues from Winter Blurring, Verdant Overgrowth and the recent wallpaper piece Aeriformic Forests, Night's Moisture clocks in at just under six hours long - a megalith in the Halifaxian woods. Designed to be a seamless non-repeating listening experience for sleeping to, it slowly but dutifully moves through different phases instead of being a static piece. Loops of different lengths overlap in new places every time they recur, much like Eno's original plans for certain types of ambient music, giving Moisture an organically growing and shifting feel, despite the repetitions. Processed field recordings of my backyard at night, as well as delicate layers of white noise and textural room sounds form the backdrop behind the orchestral compost that the elongated chords and tonalities emerge from. Womblike rhythms with nearly no treble, which resemble a human heartbeat at times, burble in and out of the stereo field, occasionally bumping into each other, and a stately but effective two-note bassline appears in places to anchor the piece from complete endless drift and to give some of the melodic parts resolution. Night's Moisture is a massive sonic sculpture, made for comfortable listening through either waking or sleeping mind states, and compatible with both headphones and larger scale stereo systems.

Night's Moisture is available as a digital download, or packaged with a CD-R that contains a special composite 80-minute mix of the piece, exclusively for the physical format. Also, following sometime soon will be a separate release of more techno/less ambient versions/mixes of the material.

**EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to Bandcamp's file size limit on uploads, the digital version is broken into four parts, which run together without gaps (although Bandcamp plays them this way), so be sure to play them back on a gap-free device (like an iPod or Winamp).
