PrintDreamState vs. Heiki Stone Shore CD/Tape/Download (paplus49)

The spectral music on the Stone Shore EP was recorded live at Christ’s Church Cathedral in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada when dreamSTATE (Scott M2 & Jamie Todd) and Heiki Sillaste performed for the New Harbours music series following the release of their first album together, The North Shore.

Back home in his Toronto studio, Scott McGregor Moore edited out the trio’s grooves and the North Shore pieces from their set and mixed in a fourth element – field recordings he had been collecting along the shoreline of Big Bay at Heiki’s cottage.


Rocks gathered from Heiki’s stoney beach were scraped, recorded, manipulated and merged with the music to help evoke impressions of the Laurentide Ice Sheet which carved out the Great Lakes and Georgian Bay, where Big Bay is located.


These final soundscapes connect the artists’ spontaneous sound creations in a stone cathedral by Hamilton harbour, with their continuing relationships to the waters, the landscapes and the atmospherics of the Great Lakes region, their deepest inspiration.
