Solstice City

Glacial Movements

Released: 27th April 2009 | 3 track ambient single
Skare is the collaboration of Mathias Josefson (Moljebka Pvlse), Fredrik Olofsson and Per Åhlund. The members of Skare are all fascinated by the circulation 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 filtered through the ice as a prisma and - most of all - the sound of this ever ongoing circle. Skare's first album, Solstice City, 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 territories. Leaving all 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. The vehicles used by Skare on this journey are field recordings, found sounds and treated and manipulated instruments.
