about

Just over a year since the landmark 'Gramophone Transmissions', Broken Harbour returns with a new hour-long ambient journey. ‘The Geometry of Shadows’ marks another stylistic-shift from previous releases and is almost entirely synth-based. Initially inspired by the concept of faster-than-light communications over galactic distances, the original material for the album was recorded under the title of ‘Ansible’ in late 2009. After a 14 month break from recording, the material was reworked, re-recorded, and recycled over 9 months in 2012 until no trace of the original material was actually used. This new version of ‘Ansible’, while retaining the spirit and atmosphere of the original recording, shifted the focus to the interplay of light and darkness, both physically, metaphorically, and spiritually, necessitating a change in title.

The original idea of superluminal communications however, still threads through the aural landscape, as echoes from the past and future over astronomical distances that we simply cannot comprehend.

These ideas: light and shadow, past and future, distance and time, informed the creative process and inspiration of this album.

The outcome is a new sound unfettered by convention or expectation, interested only in the purity of expression. Listen to Broken Harbour. It's time. ... more
