North Hive – Immersion [SLNT065]

The work on the "Immersion" album started right after the release of "Cera Alba" and is a continuation of experiments with granular synthesis based on field recordings. Random generators were actively used for some of the synths to liven up and individualize the mise en scene. The main source of inspiration for this album was macro photography.

North Hive - is an electro-acoustic project, founded in May 2012 in Saint-Petersburg. At the beginning, the basic idea around which all the experiments with sound and space unfolded - was the creation of sound landscapes of 'artificial nature'. As a result, “Cera Alba” album was born. In this album we actively use the granular synthesis based on field recordings and delay effects. At the moment, North Hive is working at the promotion of the sound sculpture concept. In the opinion of authors of the project, this genre should let sound art get maximally close to fine arts.
