alternating.bit An astounding collection of serene sounds and captivating compositions. This essential volume of underground club ambient anthems hiding under the guise of minimal and understated cover art is your ticket to aural escape. Brash synthetic stabs smeared by buffering filters and reverberations that paint expansive walls dripping with white noise. There are no fillers or weaker cuts. This consistently phenomenal score is for your enjoyment for many years to come. "Year Two" is just as crucial.

Bookending a year very full with Halifaxian works is this five-disc volume of Static Pharming, containing all 12 EPs created throughout 2013, as well as a special new album - Aeriformic Forests - recorded during the Pharming sessions and given a rightful place here. Static Pharming was intended initially to be a single-year series, however the series is now continuing on for a second year in 2014, after I made the realization that things were just starting to become self-aware, conceptually and aurally. From the icy peaks of pieces like "Empty" and the rainslick metallics of "Natow" to the blue skies of "Enhasa" and the deep blue oceans of "D.Y.B.", Static Pharming has transmuted thought to function, function to form in an ever-mutating process of live improvisation, spur of the moment drum programming and rigorous FX saturation, yielding music that is equal parts drone, dub techno and textural ambient. All the hallmarks of the CH sound are clear and accounted for, and the thick woods of Verdant Acre can still be seen from the Static shore. The composting, excavation and Analog Botany alchemy will hereafter continue to expand and explore, but for now, this pillar marks a 12-month descent through nitrous oxide clouds and sedate waters, collected conveniently in one place for the adventurous listener.

"He must go on - conquest beyond conquest. This little planet and its winds and ways, and all the laws of mind and matter that restrain him. Then the planets about him, and at last out across immensity to the stars. And when he has conquered all the deeps of space and all the mysteries of time - still he will be beginning..."

- O. Cabal, 2036
