Solstice 2

Monday 21 June 2021 saw the release of the next in the Stations of the Sun series – Solstice 2.

Here’s what it’s all about …

“She wakes from a dream of vivid primary colours, a memory of a blue globe in a sea of darkness. The doe hare slowly blinks and opens her eyes, nose catching the changing scents of the heath, meadows, woodlands and rivers. She sits alert in the tall grass, feeling the warmth of the sun on her ears and the strength returning to her limbs. Now is the time to rise, reclaim the spaces, to regain Her rightful place.”

Solstice 2 is the third instalment of the Lines of Silence Stations of the Sun project, released on the date of the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere, 2021. A collection of glissando guitar and slowly evolving abstract drones/soundscapes generated from bass guitar, Himalayan singing bowls and gong, processed through effects pedals, digital effects and filters.
