Includes: 1 unlimited edition CD autographed by the artist in handwriting, printed paper liner notes, and CD case.
On this CD, Hall presents 20 audio works with a duration of 55 minutes which merge the artist's two unique power ambient sound art forms, organum novum and power ambient pealing, into a third form which is essentially free from the shackles of tuning and time. Hall's dark styles emerged in 2010 as expressive responses to global climate change. In 2011 and 2012, Hall has combined both styles and moved further into the abstract by executing jarring microtonal melodies and chords within random temporal frameworks of indefinite time signature.
Excerpts from a press release by San Francisco Bay Area gallerist Peter Hayes:
"The sounds that Scott F. Hall lures from his various instruments and occasional field recordings resonate with a deeply internal, thoughtful sensibility. The intensity with which he creates, plays, and composes reveals a freedom of expression and ultimately a real pleasure in making sound. The artist always succeeds in focusing a listeners attention to the sounds created, the present moment, the instruments - in short, the act of listening. His explorations go beyond a definition of 'music' or 'song' and allow us to experience sound in a new way by providing a new context in which to hear it. There is a layering and a mystery, a manipulation of instruments and recorded sound, and a rock energy which allows the listener to expand our scope of what art can be as well as what music can be. Hall reveals his sound work slowly, patiently, and with great finesse."
