this monumental release in hecq’s discography is now available for the first time on vinyl format as a beautiful limited edition of 325 copies in a matte black heavy gatefold packaging & with glossy black embossing. the twelve original album tracks, finished with christoph berg's remix of the title track, have been elaborately remastered by ben lukas boysen to apply a more contemporary sound standard.
the initial release of 'night falls' in 2008 presented an important change
from ben lukas boysen's previous catalog of work. with outstanding
production and masterful control of individual sound techniques, this album
marked an artistic turning point for hecq who raised the bar from a mere
post-industrial idm producer to a contemporary modern classical sound
the album was recorded as one continuous opus with moods ranging from teary
eyed melancholy up to beauty and puissance, unleashed by discontent, the
self-assured need to change, or even a stroke of fate. never before had
hecq's music implied such melodic and compositional richness. comparing the
music on 'night falls' with romantic classical music seems imaginable;
majestic strings interact with electronic soundscapes to bring sentiments
into being. this is the manifestation of a person who is aware that changes
happen, and that changes have to be made. once again, night falls turns off the light in your room transforming it
into a ship which slowly moves along endless dark corridors of modern
classical and ambience.
