Re-mastered and re-worked by Brand at The Treehouse 2013-14, exclusive re-release on Bandcamp ONLY.
From the 2009 release notes:
Brand says, “I’d been an Ishq (Matt Hillier) fan for about 3-4 years. I found his music as part of my complete immersion in Ultimae material (Ishq kept showing up in the ‘If you like this, you’ll like this’ area of iTunes). I bought ‘Orchid’ and was hooked. I love Matt’s atmospheres and beats, the delicacy, expansiveness and expressiveness of feeling, and his intuitive and spiritual approach to music…really feels like home to me.
Matt had some free loops of his sounds on his site at that time and I couldn’t resist—I used some in a piece and sent the piece to him, Matt kindly responded. I then suggested a collaboration. He quickly sent me a entire DVD of unique material…and here we are..very easy and organic. I think everyone will really enjoy these disks which are a very nice mingling of our individual sounds; you can hear the Ishq influence, but overall, probably a bit of a darker journey than his own work, but still spacious, organic, emotive.”
Re-mastered by S. Brand 2013-2014 and re-released on Brand’s Pioneer Light Music label. Originally released on AtmoWorks 2009, re-mastered in 2012 for Pioneer Light.

Thank you to Francis and Julien and their metal radioshow “Les décibels sont dans les prés”, on Radio Mercure (France). The first hour of the show is Death – Black – Thrash – Power – Mathcore – Doom… while the second is Dark Ambient, noise, power, and industrial.
This week they played a track from Bob Ohrum’s “Elevated” from June 2010. An album Bob wrote during the loss, grief of his father’s passing and ultimately celebration of his life. Truly an amazing album – and I’m proud to see it pulled out for radio airplay.

Just a blend of good music this time through, elements following elements, building into a pleasant flow. I find the last 45 minutes particularly deep. Enjoy.
