Síol Na Gréine – Incandescence reworked for 2011

In line with our ethos of continual improvement and efforts to weed out the inadequate in favor of the superlative, Síol Na Gréine have released a reworked and improved version of 2008 album Incandescence. The debut album of this project, what Incandescence originally lacked in polish and patience for detail it made up for with a spirit of reverent curiosity and a warm, honest sound. Now, preserving that which originally made the album compelling, the album’s mix and presentation have been given a refresh alongside a number of enhancements to the composition/orchestration of some of the tracks.

Síol Na Gréine – Adhradh: Download for free

Adhradh, the new album from Síol Na Gréine, is available now as a free Creative Commons licensed download.

Continuing the narrative, motivic approach to ambient music found on preceding album Nihil, Adhradh pares back to a soundworld of contemplative austerity that is both calming and cathartic.
