Seren Ffordd - Veils, Shadows
« on: January 17, 2008, 03:01:13 PM »
I picked this up a little over a week ago from the Hypnos store and am really enjoying it. The Hypnos site describes it as "hypnotic and dreamy, with a touch of the surreal". I think that is a very accurate description.  I especially like trying to figure out what each of the sounds are by looking at the list of instruments used. I'm having a hard time getting this one out of the cd player right now. Highly recommended.    Harry D

Also enjoying this completely... I've spun it around 5 times now and it's good front to back.

Glad you guys are enjoying it.  I'm a big supporter of this artist and we're discussing the possibility of future releases (in addition to his appearance on Sounds of the Universe Overheard already released, and Vapors and Magnetism upcoming).

Thanks for the thumbs up guys ;D

glad you are enjoying the music and trying to work out what is what in the sound mix. Veils, Shadows was not intended to be non synth based when I started it, but once it got going I just loved exploring the other sound sources, seeing how much I could shift and twist it towards the final result without it becoming abrasive or washed out....

Just finished listening to Veils, Shadows and The Quiet Labyrinth, which arrived today. Amazingly good. I will be giving these some proper headphone excursions soon, but just wanted to chime in.

Excellent work.

A wonderful addition to the Hypnos roster - we recently got the disc and are finding it quite wonderful, and the comp. track as well.  Looking forward to future releases!  Congrats both to Mike and Seren.

Finally got around to buying this and I must echo all the other praise.  I have everything SF released previously to this (Umbra label) and Veils Shadows may be the best I've heard from him.  Spooky, surreal, and totally engrossing listen from start to finish.  HIGHLY recommend this disc!
