ABOUT THIS ALBUM


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

On this CD, "Sonus Pictura" [Sound Painting], the artist presents 20 audio works with a duration of over 45 minutes. Hall's "power ambient peal" pieces represent the next stage of development of his "organum novum" series. His power ambient peals seem similarly jarring and intense, but unlike the organum novum pieces, Hall's peals contain no percussion at all; the pieces are characterized by elongated, minimal drones centered upon a root/fifth tuning and various related natural harmonic overtones. By using the word "peal", Hall draws a direct association between his pieces and the traditional western European practice of ringing bells to mark banal, solemn, and ceremonial occasions. In all, Hall's power ambient peals are quieter, more meditative, and colder in feeling than are his clearly apocalyptic organum novum works.

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."
