"I think, while working on this release I’ve finally approached the line beyond which my own role in the process of creation is minimized. During two working months the overall concept was changed so many times, that I’ve finally realized there’s no need for it. Sometimes the material seemed to evolve separately, on its own, leaving me only a mechanical work to record what was happening."
The main idea of the album "Gaia" is a journey round the worlds of John Cunningham Lilly, which he described in his work “The center of the cyclone”. While creating this album, we wanted to convey the atmosphere of those spaces in the sound field, which he discovered.
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.
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.
Our music is all about pure being in moment. We make sound sculptures in live, that makes your souls feel peacefulness, and allows you to immerse your mind in the trance state. In our sounds we use live fx-guitar, Microphone with various percussion instruments and sounds, field recordings, and computer programming. Welcome to temple of sacral sound and have a nice trip into yourself!
