WRITER: Shea Stedford
Asking Shea about this collection of tracks he says it is, “about merging the dark with the light; finding a happy medium between the ugly and the beautiful
representing science and nature in its best and worst cases within each track”.
The fusion of field recordings and electronics stand out. Commenting; Shea describes his love for, “ambience of real life sounds, especially in electronic music. I feel it helps to humanise and personify sound; it’s haunting but at the same time reassuring”.
He concludes by offering, “this is a body of work which hopefully speaks to everyone in a different way but sparks emotion”

Dystopian awakenings. An electro hybrid of twisted sound design meets forceful impact trailers.91 individual cues featuring alternative and bespoke underscore arrangements offering deeply contrasting moods and tensions.
WRITERS: Udi Harpaz, Amir Gurvitz
Udi comments on the drive behind this project; “we were first thinking of something unusual and fresh that has hardly been heard before. We’ve looked for different rhythmic patterns while making thedeployment of sounds both intense and suspenseful”.
On the extensive use of sound design Amir brings forward;
“Our techniques span varied synthesis skills such as FM & granular through to the manipulation of real-world sounds. The sonic control was then mostly designed during the arrangement process”.
On the hopes of how this album could be used Assaf says, “This album is cinematic; with its wide dynamic range it can go from a first person perspective
through to being simply epic and explosive”.
