Now there's a cute little package: a 3" CD packed in a transparent geographical map, packed in a foldout postcard, packed in a beautiful black embossed paper envelope. Oh, the joys of holding a handmade DiY-artwork packages that is obviously created with love..!
Until now I had not heard of Steven M. Halliday in any way, and not much information can be found about him online, although he has "worn many hats throughout his career from producer to sound designer, musicologist to occasional film composer and consultant".
Also, I did not know anything about "A Relation of a Journey" - it was just someone's online recommendation that triggered my interest.
All the greater was my surprise when listening to this little gem: within the short timespan of just sixteen minutes, classical music, ambient drones, field recordings and experimental soundscapes merge into an adventurous musical journey.
