'Solistice' was originally written in 2008 as a complete album but was split into two E.P's. 'Phonetics and Fiction' was released on the Mobeer (Moteer) label in 2009 (mobeer::007). 'Tegami Beauty' was released in 2008 on U-Cover. 'Nōhau' was originally part of the album but was taken off due to the length of each 3" release and this is the first time this has been released as the album it was intended to be.
Recorded and mixed by Ian Hawgood in Tokyo, 2007 - 2008.
Big thanks to Koen and Craig for all their support with the original releases.
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
Drones, synths and epic sound walls emerging from a distant fog. Meditative, peaceful and as if from the inside of an iceberg. Sounds that aspire to the light. An outstanding, deep and imaginative album with subtle electronics. Apart from "Day" by Christopher Hipgrave (https://homenormal.bandcamp.com/album/day), for me it is the strongest album in the catalogue of Home Normal. SILENCE ET LIBERTÉ
