Like Susbarbatus, Sol Invictus is a collection of tracks that have developed over the course of several years.

Working (OK, playing) by myself in my studio allows me to explore different musical territories that wouldn't work in the band context with airsculpture. Here the tracks are much more carefully constructed. The common thread is a base of dense multi-layered sequences that shift and blend, sometimes imperceptibly. Antiquark (from the Susbarbatus album) was the first example of this approach; here it is applied to varied tracks with distinct feels, sometimes with sequences running in isolation, sometimes as a bed for played parts.

Listen with the lights out.
