John Paraskevopoulos A deeply evocative masterpiece that reaches impressive levels of aural richness and sophistication. Despite its layers of subtle complexity, it remains an immensely moving composition.

Silver Compost 01:14:54


SILVER COMPOST is the second of two sessions of advanced resynthesis, using complex and logic-gate-led generative systems to transform ANTHELION recordings into something Halifaxian. As the source of the ANTHELION sessions are primarily field recordings, textures, atmospheric events and other non-musical/non-instrumental ephemera, a unique challenge is accepted on the subsequent COMPOST sessions that follow. Attempts have been made to extract tonal and rhythmic information from the original audio and arrange it into a form that somewhat resembles minimal techno and dub music. The resultant sound is a warm pulsing mass of alchemical design and distantly perceived suggestions of melody that recalls CH releases such as URCEOLATMOSPHERION, RURALS and AMBUSILICATE.
