Dweller at the Threshold
Dweller at the Threshold - Generation-Transmission...

Artist: Dweller at the Threshold
P: 1998

This is really one long piece divided up into what is described as movements which map to fifteen tracks - all coming in under six minutes. There are noticeably different moods between the "Generation" (parts 1-7), "Transmission" (parts 1-4), and "Illumination" (part 1-4) tracks. The "Generation" tracks are quite desolate overall and the sequences often makes you think of how electricity and alien devices might sound, it's like wandering through a massive strange machine. "Transmission" in contrast is lighter in mood and conveys the energy of something being transmitted striving to reach its destination. Finally, the "Illumination" tracks are rather pensive, especially "Illumination Part 2" which has a reverbing synth that repeatedly stamps onto the soundscape as drones and washes provide the continuity of sound.

John Duval - Hell's Canyon

Artist:John Duval
P: 2003
Hell's Canyon is the solo debut of John Duval, member of Binary's own Dweller at the Threhold. Created entirely with Duval's massive array of modular synthesizers (a wall of electronics dubbed "the Fist of God") Hell's Canyon is an abstract, deep-space exploration of pure electronics. With all these analog synthesizers involved, of course there's an element of the "classic EM" sound, but this is not a retro, "Berlin school" composition. Closer comparisons would be Robert Rich's Bestiary album (another abstract, pure modular synth piece), or perhaps even the deep-space excursions of Hypnos's own Viridian Sun.

All performances ere are by Duval himself, but fellow Dweller at the Threshold member Dave Fulton edited, assembled and mastered Duval's original tapes into a sonically refined and cohesive recording.
