On this day, exactly ten years ago, I inaugurated my SØLVE project with the release of a three song EP, svovel | salt | kvikksølv, featuring a mix of dark ambient compositions, lush instrumentation, occult and alchemical ritualism, and an unabashed love for long, textural soundscapes. It was initially expected to be solely for my own interest, as an outlet for very self-absorbed ideas and intentions, but over the course of the past ten years the project has developed into a primary focus, one of great importance to me and a necessary form of expression that has aided me through some very difficult times. Recently though, I’ve found myself enjoying the sounds and themes that originally conceived the project, as directly evident in my most recent EP, The Dark & The Wicked.
With this being the tenth anniversary of SØLVE, I decided to reflect on the project’s earliest formations and give svovel | salt | kvikksølv a proper Digital and CD release. Included are the remastered mixes of the original compositions, augmented with an updated mix of Hans Bål (originally released on a Solstice compilation curated by PALE NOIR Records) and supported by remixes from a few select artists who’s work I greatly appreciate and felt would best connect and reflect the aesthetic of the release.
If you’ve come this far with me, thanks for an amazing ten years, and if you’re new to my works, I hope you enjoy this opportunity to explore their humble beginnings. Thank you!
