ISTIS is a mix of field recording from nature, soundscapes and ambient, inspired by norse nature and landscapes and our role as a part of nature.
The composing of ISTID came as a reaction to our modern lifes, our world and how it sometimes seem confusing, stressful and noisy.
Put of by all this and inspired by books about earths history, iceages and the forces that formed the landscapes we have today starting from a world of silence before man.
This is the 3rd album in the series and we can now imagine man is about to start his lonely quest for meaning in the desolation.
The frozen winds of the north lash temper the soul.
Their constant breath drags the listener towards the more organic part of Istid III.
Dark ambient made in Norway, third chapter of the Northaunt trilogy, hinged between the horizons of a remote Ice Age. Imperceptible the continuum between Part I and Part II.
Mystic tolls, indecipherable background noises.
Strategic field recordings.
A female voice in the distance seals the apex of the loss even inside the body.
The dull shades fade.
Part III is the watershed track of the album, full of nostalgia.
A slow flowing in a placid forest of sounds, section of a moment.
The atmosphere of meditation is favored by shy keyboard notes.
The subterranean tensions lose their vigor, glows radiate the darkness of the night, deep and desolate.
The embers that burns the last farewell to our day.
Once it was fire on Earth.
