Michael Reiley & Wild Anima – H E L I O S T Ā S I O

Heliostāsio stands for the standing of the sun so called by ancient Greeks to describe the solstice. This ambient album is the outcome of an impromptu live jam session by sound artists’s Michael Reiley (Philadelphia) and Wild Anima (Berlin) recorded at Berlin’s Glogauair residency space in September 2018.

Inspired by their own individual stays in Iceland the artists paint a multi-layered soundscape standing in between night and day and time and matter. Translating this infinite yet ephemeral moment found in the dance of the celestial bodies, where shadow and light slip softly in between the rhythms of nature and the cosmos. The spaces in between, dawn and dusk, solstices and equinoxes. Recurring patterns yet never the same.
