Ex-Slowdive drummer Simon Scott releases his new 3″ cd called ‘Navilis’ following his solo album ‘Navigare’ last year.
It was written, recorded and mixed by Simon on 18th/19th December 2009 during heavy snowfall at studio o3o3o in Cambridge. NIVALIS cd-r comes in a SFH-ish huge folding-poster-artwork.
“The whole time i was writing this piece the snow just never stopped falling so i had this amazing visual flow that inspired me to keep on throwing musical ideas into the track. I had no intention to venture outside so I just kept on recording for two days, mixing as i went along, until the snow stopped. I added recordings of me clearing snow and ice from my doorstep whilst my heater was working flat out to push the sub zero temperatures up a few degrees. I see NIVALIS as a tribute to the winter, the snow and the beauty of how the seasons change here in England.” – Simon Scott
