The Halo Project

The dawn chorus is silenced by jet engines… metronomic steps are interrupted by an authoritarian loudspeaker… ebbing waves are broken by playful children…

Audio Track Listing:

1. A low hum in the void.
2. Blessings of cross-cultural harmonics
3. Pronunciation of environmental scales
4. Prelude to a Valdivian forrest
5. Concentric glory at 12 Hz
