Loss for Words
Sincerity and Reverence
-Debut collaboration between Noveliss (of Clear Soul Forces) and burgeoning beatsmith, Dixon Hill.
-Concept album based on the I Ching, the most challenging and obscure of ancient Chinese texts.
-The ten track LP is designed with no end or beginning, and is comprised samples, live instruments, and field recordings.
The first collaboration album between Noveliss and Dixon Hill comes in the form of a concept album based on the I Ching or Book of Changes. The track list was constructed using the ancient text and its overall theme stems from the wisdom therein. Conceived, written, and recorded in isolation, Book of Changes sets Noveliss as a hermetic sage seeking balance and enlightenment over Dixon Hill's ethereal musical backdrops. Dixon Hill used samples, live instruments, and field recordings to create the sonic template for this record. Each song transition smoothly from one to another using melodic elements and natural sounds to tether the songs together for a cohesive listening experience.
