Marcel 'Nemo' Frehse This album is like fine grains of sand, flowing slowly into the soul. A grand meditative journey.

alternating.bit This is the soundtrack to heaven, it's as simple as that. The serene and soothing Halifaxian ingredients are poured into a pot, stirred with different motions and directions rendering a welcomed similar sound palette for this euphoric symphony. Blissful elegance for the ears.

David Prescott If you like Halifaxian Cantos, you'll love this of course. To my ears, it has a slightly more upbeat approach. I hear the same beauty as in Green Shape. A view across a sweeping panorama on a mostly sunny/partly cloudy day.

  • Ultra-Limited Deluxe 12xCD-R Box Set Edition
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    All ten discs of the bagged edition of SILHOUETTES, contained in a thick black plastic case, with a wraparound recycled cardstock insert bearing two deep blue printed cardstock panels on the front and back cover, and a hand-cut rugged cardboard "faceplate" that sits inside the case, hand-stamped with the CH sun logo in black ink, with hand-numbering and the artist's signature on the back.

    NOTE: This set must be packed in a rigid box, and not a bubblemailer, due to its size/weight (1 pound 4 ounces) and constitution. Intl. shipping for this item is unusually higher for this reason and buyers are thanked for their understanding of this, and, if able, encouraged to order a few other things to offset the shipping cost without adding significantly to the total.

After the years of work that resulted in two volumes of ambient compositions called STATUETTES, the curiosity to explore these recordings at the molecular level became too much to resist, and several different tangential sessions took place wherein the Statuettes material was melted down and reprocessed through several digital and analog systems, generative modular paths and FX processors, and used in performative ways reminiscent of the HALIFAXIAN CANTOS recordings. Casting shadows from the objects and structures built on STATUETTES, these SILHOUETTES are new lands and weather systems that recall their far off provenance alongside a Korg ES-1 sampler, a Memphis Blue Beat drum machine and a Behringer MS-1 analog monosynth.

These recordings were originally drafted simply for the pleasure of doing them, to satisfy impulses and curiosities that naturally spring up around my work as I close in on completing different projects, but I've now decided to collect them, gloss them over with a nice cozy mastering pass and release them here in an effort to raise a bit of cash for a new modular synthesizer case, as I've already outgrown my first two cases. Due to this, SILHOUETTES will only be produced in a physical edition of 10 copies, unless/until more copies are necessary.

NOTE: The special "boxed" edition of SILHOUETTES contains two additional discs of material - SACRAL PHASE I & II - sidereal recordings that were neither wholly separated from the recording process nor completely in line with the main "phases"
