Loneliness – Part One

“The last year’s leaves are on the beech: The twigs are black; the cold is dry; To deeps beyond the deepest reach. The Easter bells enlarge the sky. O ordered metal clatter-clang! Is yours the song the angels sang? You fill my heart with joy and grief – Belief! Belief! And unbelief… And, though you tell me I shall die, You say not how or when or why.”

Sound-driven society are pleased to present the “Loneliness” series.

Thank you all so very much, who have supported our work so far. And thank you all for listening.

Prayer At Sunrise – Part Two

“O greater Maker of this Thy great sun, Give me the strength this one day’s race to run, Fill me with light, fill me with sun-like strength, Fill me with joy to rob the day its length. Light from within, light that will outward shine, Strength to make strong some weaker heart than mine, Joy to make glad each soul that feels its touch; Great Father of the sun, I ask this much.”

Sound-driven society are pleased to present the last part in the “Prayer At Sunrise” series.
Thank you for listening.

Myrkviðr – part two

The first track in this second part, takes the journey on a disoriented path. Through mist and haze, with drones that clouds your mind. As everything seems lost and leads into a hole, the final track appears. Hope will once again emerge, with rays of light to bring you back. And lead you through the end.

Northern Light by Fähund, part two

Sound-driven society is back with two new releases from FÄHUND, celebrating the spring and summer. Both parts contain a more soft and light sound, were darkness has been put aside and the sun has arrived to shine with rays off light.

This is a celebration to long summer days. With light that seems to never give up, warmth that heats the skin and smell like joy. For this is the season when everything turns green and bloom. This trip starts in a calm sea of light. Where soft waves of sounds takes you slowly through the first part. The second part starts with calm ray of light that filters through the clouds. And as the high tunes slowly rises, the swirling low drones transport you to a floating state. In the end the sun reveals it true glory, and transforms everything to a shower of light. Light that blinds the eyes, and disappears in a colorful haze.

Northern Light by Fähund, part one

Sound-driven society is back with two new releases from FÄHUND, celebrating the spring and summer. Both parts contain a more soft and light sound, were darkness has been put aside and the sun has arrived to shine with rays off light.

This release is a farewell to the long cold winter, and a celebration for a lighter tomorrow. With longer days and warmer times. It starts with a mellow drone that rings out the darkness, and prepares for the light to arrive. As the darkness turns to light, calm chimes leads through the fields of sounds. Finally, at the end the voice of summer gets clearer and lands in a wave of soft light that fades away.

Harvest songs by Fähund, part two

Sound-driven society presents the final part in the Harvest songs series that illustrate and hail the advent of autumn. This final part includes the typical progressive wave of repeating sequences which has come to profound the arrangements crafted by Fähund.

This release as the previous has a more amplified processed style, with a warmer and mellow sound. They also include an idea on how to use as few sounds and channels as possible, but at the same time create a wall of sounds with a minimal set of tools. Every sound and loop is carefully placed and tuned to paint landscapes and mindsets, and to craft a harmful progressive slow music experience.

Harvest songs by Fähund, part one

Sound-driven society is back with a new series of releases from Fähund. This time with a more humble and mellow touch. This series of two releases illustrates the advent of autumn.

Part one consist of two songs, where the first one is a laid back and deep dark monotone drone with a hint of light. The first song slowly takes you to the second, and turns things around slightly and bring back even more light to the darkness. It contains few surprises, but it floats you forward through hazy landscapes and clouded rays of light.

The winter lake that lays waiting for the early days ending

Sound-driven society proudly presents the last  out of two releases by Fähund, with the a common ode to the lake and the waters. This release is an hymn to the winter lake that lays waiting for the early days ending.

” I find myself wandering away from the shore, further out into the open cold misty landscape. Dark tree lines stretches and frames the frosty mirror, black depths reveals under my feet as gray shades covered with cracks and bruises. The cold wind draws in from the north, sweeping the white powder that covers the surface in silence. Small white hills forms as waves in sections, and the presence of a fox leads across to the end. All I can hear is the sound of the harsh wind as the emptiness surrounds my consciousness with a cold whispering touch.”

First out of two releases by Fähund with the common ode to water

Sound-driven society proudly presents the first out of two releases by Fähund, with the common ode to the lake and the waters. This release is a hymn to the calm misty summer morning, when the first warm breeze sweeps through the air, and the sun peaks through the hazy clouds waiting to slip through. The water I still, and softly reflects the sky in different shades of gray, surrounded by the richness of the forest borders to keep the silence undisturbed.
