'Pre-Light' is an early version of 'The Shattered Light'. Over the course of almost four years, I spent a great deal of time recording takes of various parts of the eventual album as I wanted to avoid using software and editing easily in place of a purer, more intimate and immediate feel. 'Pre-Light' was an early cut of the title track that really brought the overall sound in for me. Stripped of the (amazing) mastering of the final album by James Plotkin, this really feels like a new way of approaching the final work, and is just a nice addition in terms of the live process behind it.
'Pre-Light' also acts as a nice halfway point between 'The Shattered Light' and my follow-up, 'Arcs' due out later in 2016.

Let's put it this way- this is simply one of our favourite works ever!...A collection of variations on a theme that drift by, perfuming the air, or that stop a moment to whisper you a story. Evocative in its sparse beauty, We are sure this will been the permanent playlist always, right alongside Arvo Part's "Alina" and offthesky's "Silent went the Sea" ....ss/tm/am editions vaché
