ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Includes: 1 unlimited edition CD autographed by the artist in handwriting, printed paper liner notes, and CD case.

On "Sonus Animatio" [Sound Animation], Hall presents 25 audio works with a duration of over 51 minutes. One track is a stereo field recording--a sound print of a particular time and place. Other tracks record live performance of his avant garde musical pieces. Most often on this CD, Hall uses sound as a sculptural material, a temporal entity , and a substance which infers a specific sense of spatial location and moody atmosphere. He gradually builds up rich layers of precise harmony, melody, and rhythm to create his intricate works which are vividly pictorial in their impact on the ear and the mind of the listener.

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."
