Vir Unis - Stand Still Like The Hummingbird [new release]
« on: January 30, 2009, 08:48:55 AM »
Artist:   Vir Unis
Title:   Stand Still Like The Hummingbird
Released:  January 16, 2009
Label:  AtmoWorks - http://www.atmoworks.com
Format:  mp3 download (320 kbps) and cdr

Stand Still Like The Hummingbird is the latest offering from AtmoWorks artist Vir Unis. In ways it is aligned with earlier work that Vir Unis did with Steve Roach or Saul Stokes and solo work like Mercury and Plastic as well as Book of Mutations. There are deep and ultraviolet colored aural landscapes to explore while geometrical images of rhythms and electro-acoustical hybrid grooves forge new paths. While incorporating built upon techniques, this is an evolutionary step forward from Body Electric and Blood Machine, displaying a technical skill in percussion, machine programming, and refining 'in the studio' techniques to build a more elegant future.

Available as an mp3 download (320 kbps) or cdr from http://store.atmoworks.com and also as a cdr from the Hypnos store.

Track List:

01 Sons of Thunder   [5:23]
02 A Calling Through The Wind  [8:15]
03 A Deepening Shift   [5:10]
04 Since Feeling Is First  [5:02]
05 The Moon And Tomorrow   [4:15]
06 In The Shade Sat Quietly   [3:48]
07 Stand Still Like The Hummingbird   [23:09]
