about

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.


Founded in 1995, dreamSTATE (Scott M2 & Jamie Todd) are a Canadian ambient music project known for their soundscape installations and live ambient and drone music performances. They also curate the long-running AMBiENT PiNG concert series in Toronto and are founders of the DRONE:KLUB community-drone-improv group.

Heiki Sillaste is a veteran of the Toronto electronic music scene and was a founding member of groups such as Digital Poodle, Kinder Atom and Lazer Caps. Since 1987, Heiki has released an impressive catalogue of well over 45 synthesizer-based records and made over 150 compilation appearances.
