Pausal – Autumnal

Label: Self release
Format: Digital release
Country: US
Genre: Ambient, Electronic
Year: August 31, 2011

"Autumnal" is comprised of two long-form drone compositions which aim to be as dynamic in form and structure as they are peaceful in effect. They were created primarily using guitar and processed vinyl recordings, later supplemented with the violin of Svitlana Samoylenko (of Olan Mill) and arranged/edited on computer.

Despite being our latest release by date, elements of these tracks have existed in some form or another for several years - even back to improvised sessions in 2007 that resulted in our debut self-titled EP. On completion of our first album "Lapses"; we were able once again to focus on this material.
