of water, snow and ice. The metamorphosis from gas to floating liquid to
snow to solid ice through freezing, the light reflecting from the snow and

"Solstice City is the first album from Skare. The album is an interpretation
of a journey through a shifting landscape where the city meets nature.
Departing from a distant and foreign shore, the traveller embarks a ship,
uncertain of his destination. This prelude, introduced vividly in "To
the other shore", releases this pilgrim to further explore yet unchartered
man-made conventions, the second track "Through Wind and Broken Ice"
takes us where the city imitates nature. Finally, a factory appears in
the whiteout; a place where angels are manufactured as presented in the
final track "The Snow Angel Factory"...
... vehicles used are field recordings, found sounds and treated and manipulated
instruments. All sound material has been digitally processed and arranged
at Studio 3, EMS in Stockholm, Sweden, 2006.
