Alister Flint – Under The Surface [SLNT033]

tagged with ,

"For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down in words with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived it. There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which are not thoughts, and to which as yet I have found it absolutely impossible to adapt to language. These fancies arise in the soul, alas how rarely. Only at epochs of most intense tranquillity, when the bodily and mental health are in perfection. And at those weird points of time, where the confines of the waking world blend with the world of dreams. And so I captured this fancy, where all that we see, or seem, is but a dream within a dream."

Alister Flint – Alter Nativis [SLNT027]

tagged with ,

Alter Nativis speaks of alternative worlds, other origins. Such as our inner and oneiric realms as well as worlds million kilometers away. But maybe most important, it is a gathering of musical snapshots, taken at random times, through various windows, while looking at some of these alternatives.

Alister Flint – Uchuu [SLNT015]

tagged with ,

"Music (...) gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of (...) all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form..” 'Uchuu' is a Japanese word for universe. It is about acceleration and regeneration. The album is born a year ago, following a collaborative project to put in music some of the latest scientific facts. However, 'Uchuu' is not about space and cosmos only, but about what surrounds us, and what makes us human. As we are all part of this acceleration and regeneration process, just as much as we are all influenced by it. Sometimes, it's beauty. Sometimes, it gets frightening, unsettling at least. 'Uchuu' is all that, and more, I hope.
