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.
