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

On this CD, Hall presents 14 pieces with a total duration of 40 minutes. The artist's work here is composed almost entirely of precisely layered electric bass guitar tracks. Each piece is an exploration of intricate rhythms and expressive harmonies created intuitively through a repetitious, additive technique that is ultimately rooted in the ancient musical forms known as canon and round. Hall’s work in “Scultura Sana 4” [Sound Sculpture 4] is delicate, technically meticulous, emotionally rich, and remarkably diverse in tone despite the homogenous use of a single electric bass guitar throughout.

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."

Dark dreams of Aliens
Bravo! Scott Hall outdoes himself once again. This album has a dark sonic palette, reminiscent of H. R. Giger's art. Bass songs from another world flow from beginning to end.
