---------------------------

"'Sonance' consists of three equal length pieces --each a diverting exploration of place, and added human interaction. All three are absorbing and enveloping constructions, that sustain a strangely moving and powerful atmosphere.

"Desert" is created from VLF recordings made in the Nevada Desert, overlaid with obsidian needle chimes and the voice of Hannah White.
"Wood" is a recording of Shiell's composition "Earth Organ" recorded in a wood in Wiltshire with a group of musicians, (score included in accompanying PDF booklet) with added field and studio recordings.
"Air" is a "Deep Listening" piece influenced by Pauline Oliveros recorded in London with the additional sounds of a windmill in Spain and an air conditioning unit. "

---------

" Each one wraps layers of meaning around a unique and bewitching listening experience, entwining Pauline Oliveros-esque deep listening experiments with the creak of Spanish windmill beams and the gurgle of Glastonbury's legendary Red Spring. Sonance feels itself like stepping into a myth. album of strange vibrations, resonating on multiple planes simultaneously. A pungent, fertile treat for the ears. "
