***While Alien 8 Recordings has had the pleasure of releasing three full-length albums by AIDAN BAKER’s ambient doom project NADJA, as well as his collaborative effort FANTASMA PARASTASIE with TIM HECKER, this marks the label’s first solo release with the artist. Although Liminoid/Lifeforms is considered to be a solo effort, there are in fact no less than eight guest musicians helping out on the recording. These include Canadian noise legend KNURL, as well as members of ARC, PICASTRO, FOREST CITY LOVERS, and WHISPER ROOM. Liminoid is a composition for large ensemble exploring sonic immersion in drones and textures, rhythms and pulsations. Incorporating composed and improvised segments, the piece uses elongation of sound and layered polyphony in an attempt to create a liminal and/or numinous state. Lifeforms is a composition for strings, prepared/effected guitar, and amplified metal works. Both works feature vocals. The album has been both skillfully mixed from multiple recordings and mastered by JAMES PLOTKIN.
