about

Hypnotic and meditative, 'NYX' waxes and wanes around thirteen slow-motion tracks encompassing depth and air. Each track is centered on a fixed tonal structure, recurring sounds and themes appearing throughout giving an overall coherent sound to the album. Spatial and spectral processes add to the subtle colour of the work. In terms of spectral balance, 'NYX' has a tempered upper frequency range, resulting in a softer sound than is usually present in ambient music. For this release, I felt that less was more and focusing on a
somewhat band-limited spectra allowed for a more tempered overall production.

The album is 'long-form' in terms of its overall duration - it's a 'single' album of just over 2 hours in length. In the traditional sense of
defining an album by what can be fitted on a CD, it would be a 'double' album, but as 'NYX' is a digital only release, there's no
requirement to define it as such.

Headphone listening recommended / suggested.
(album was composed, mixed and mastered on headphones)

24 Bit Flac version available here exclusively.
