Equinox 1 is the second release in the Lines of Silence Stations of the Sun project, marking the solstices and equinoxes. Released on the date of the 2021 Vernal Equinox in the northern hemisphere and in pantheistic celebration of Ostara.
Equinox 1 comprises two pieces – The Earth, the Goddess marks the awakening from winter with analogue synth drones, through a hypnotic Berlin School synth sequence, settling into a glissando guitar coda. Hare in the Dawn Light moves from lydian guitar into Rainbow Dome analog synth sequences. A gentler analogue synth outro marks the final transition from winter to spring.
This is the first Lines of Silence release to primarily feature analogue synths (Arturia Microbrute, Behringer Crave and Volca Keys).
Equinox 1 is being released digitally only at present – hopefully there will be a physical release later in the year of the whole Stations of the Sun series. In addition to the digital release you can also buy a very limited edition print of the artwork – Night and Day (spray paint on 300GSM craft card). These are hand made so each one will differ slightly.
