Fade to White

A 6 track minimal/glitch ep (45m 29s) — released January 17th 2005 on Touch
Benny Nilsen writes: ''Fade To White' contains material from the making of 3 pieces which were created within a different season and then edited, re-arranged and re-mixed in the summer of 2004. 6 pieces contain outdoor field recordings from travels in mainly central europe in 2003 [Gdansk/Poland, Narva/Estonia, Sarajevo/Serbia Herzegovina, Arad/Romania, Trieste/Italy], and static indoor recordings from 2004 Stockholm/Sweden, Brussels/Belgium, Amsterdam/Netherlands, Vienna/Austria, Geneva/Switzerland. I used acoustic and electrical instruments recorded in open spaces picking up the natural ambience, blending those with environmental sounds of nature and then arranged it in the computer, creating dynamic layers of sound that feed from one another.' This is BJNilsen's 3rd album for Touch, after Land [Touch # Tone 17 - as Hazard] and Live at the Konzerthaus, Vienna [Touch # TO:CDR5]. He also recorded 3 hazard albums for Ash International. What they have said before about his work: '... they shift and flow together until it's a warm and whirring wash of delicate low end rumbles and faraway shimmer. So beautiful.' [Aquarius , USA] 'His sound is distant, alien and yet seductive enough to draw you outside your house to drift through the streets, following its trail for hours on end.' [XLR8R, USA] 'Nilsen is a whiz with atmosphere, creating held tones that blend perfectly with whatever ambient sound happens to meet them.' [Pitchfork Media, USA] 'very pure and sophisticated, peaceful and frightfully beautiful.' [Phosphor, Germany] Composed and Mixed By BJNilsen @ ToneRoom Stockholm 2003-2004 Mastered by Denis Blackham @ Skye Mastering Design and Photography by Jon Wozencroft 2 free download tracks on www.bjnilsen.com'

Civilization has fallen into its grave and a new ice age has begun. Frozen dreamers are buried in altered states of consciousness where the drone crystalizes pure primitive beauty. For a long time, BJNilsen, aka Hazard, has been resonating ambient ideas from the forms of nature, and this suite of six polar hums is his most accomplished yet. - [Billy Hell] FLUX (UK):
