As you could probably tell from the titles: this album consists of four tracks, all of them based on the the longform harmonium pieces that Glen constructs like no one else can. The tracks evolve very slowly, so this is definitely a dreamy trip.
There’s a cliché that drone music is dark. Not this one. Droomharmonium is the sonic equivalent of being exposed to light – kind of like being woken up by the sun, on one of the first days of spring. It leaves you feeling a bit hazy, but at the same time it’s a powerful experience.
All these parts have been recorded at Glen’s home in St-Denys, with no overdubs. When you hear birds at some point during the recording, that’s only because Glen opened the windows, and the birds came to give feedback on the Hellvete sessions.
