about

An octave of tech noire.

This album coalesced from songs performed live many times without recording or release. After a time these eight gravitated together. This project was recorded in Reykjavík using a few fine old analogue synthesizers and drum machines as it was performed. In a fashion, the album is more the product of evolution than engineering.

The recordings were mastered on tape. The tape stock used was SM911. The main synthesizers used here are the Minimoog, Jupiter-6, EEH Banana, SH-09, TR-808, Jupiter-4 and SH-101. The effects units used were the Revox A-77, Dynacord VRS23 and PDD-14. The sequencers used were MPC-2000 and Atari 520ST.

Track Name: A Fable IX
survey the gardens, fields and bowers
the buds, the blossoms and the flowers

then tell me there the wood bine grows,
that vies in sweetness with the rose?

or where the lilly's snowy white
that throws such beauties on the fight?

yet folly is it to declare,
that these are neither sweet nor fair

the crystal shines with fainter rays
before the di'mons brighter blaze

and fops will say, the di'mond dies
before the luster of your eyes

and fops will say, the di'mond dies
before the luster of your eyes

but i, who deal in truth, deny
that neither shine when you are by

neither shines when you are by
Track Name: Dismantle
dismantle

dismantle

dismantle your culture
dismantle your name
dismantle your vision
dismantle your pain

i see exactly how the time is meant to build
a foreign landscape in a place out of the mind

too many differences to leave the mean of gain
in fallen tresspasses with certainty in vain

dismantle your culture
dismantle your name
dismantle your vision
dismantle your pain

dismantle
dismantle
dismantle
dismantle
dismantle

dismantle your culture
dismantle your name
dismantle your vision
dismantle your pain

we fare as northern winds return to mourn the leaves
doubly forsaken hands in idleness dispair

coldness comforting the darkened mire of ice
another winter on another paradise

ansonsten rests a ready land turning above
biostic structure of a gloming trail

flames of the waxing tides mark seedlings to the way
the great red harvest mark will blue on a new day

dismantle your culture
dismantle your name
dismantle your vision
dismantle your pain
Track Name: Nocturnus
waiting for the night
a speech of destiny

rivers of a wonderous mark
centuries from the last time

last time

with elegant ruins of machinery
and walls of a fallen great city

echoed danger awaits in a thicket of stone
broken bones in the moonlight

can't walk can't talk can't run

i fly
(synth solo)

can't walk can't talk can't run
(synth solo)
rivers of a wonderous mark
centuries from the last time

elegant ruins of machinery
walls of a fallen great city
(synth solo)
a speech of destiny

echoed danger awaits
in a thicket of stone

lifting off from the sop ground
wonder fast unseen

a stranger to company
for an ancient place
in the rooms of a path to the future

(close synth solo)

is this the dream or a lie
Track Name: Walk Away
walk away
walk away

the time is past
the moon is gone
got my hands in my pockets
winds of the fairest times

you said walk
so i walk away
to the trinity of wild ones
and the beginning of a new day

(synth solo)
{walk away}
{walk}
{walk away}
{walk}
{walk away}

enter to the night
the hounds of the veil
the chastity of horror
hunt on a murkened trail

heiress of the altar
all the lights that burn
on the lands of all her time
and we shall never return
(synth solo)
{walk}
{walk away}
{walk}
{walk away}
{walk away}

walk away

(101 synth solo)

the time is past
the moon is gone
got my hands in my pockets
winds of the fairest times

you said walk
so i walk away
to the trinity of wild ones
and the beginning of a new day

Track Name: Intrepid
ahoi, i drive the highway graciously
ahoi, i drive the highway graciously
ahoi, forever in the mirror lee
ahoi, i drive the highway graciously

(whistle solo)

sure the half of me
is far away
the breach of feeling that
i can not stay
for ever drives my car through
nova realms
headlamps revealing what's
before the helm
creature autoworks
upon the roads
bonded steel and flesh
are living nodes
the soul and wisdom
of a wandering man
the standing search for
farther abendlands

ahoi, i drive the highway graciously
ahoi, i drive the highway graciously
ahoi, forever in the mirror lee
ahoi, i drive the highway graciously

(whistle solo)

sure the half of me
is far away
the breach of feeling that
i can not stay
the soul and wisdom
of a wandering man
the standing search for
farther abendlands
a motor's comfort
on the vast benign
over fastness scapes
and lampstar shine
wish i could rest here for
another day
but my true home is
alone on the highway



ahoi, i drive the highway graciously
ahoi, i drive the highway graciously
ahoi, forever in the mirror lee
ahoi, i drive the highway graciously

(whistle solo)
Track Name: Autovore
i want you to meet yourself
in a favourable way

sun tides on a perfect taste
of a wisting wine

i want you to meet yourself
in a favourable way

to more formulate the question
and to say goodbye

(synth solos)

good bye

i want you to meet yourself
in a favourable way

sun tides on a perfect taste
of a wisting wine

i want you to meet yourself
in a favourable way

to more formulate the question
and to say goodbye

(synth solos)

to say good bye

good bye

good bye

say good bye

good bye
