Codex (2012 Re​-​release)

by Steve Brand



Originally released in 2008, "Codex" was a sort of sampler of my work to that date. Timing in at just over 2 hours, I've remixed, re-structured and/or re-mastered most of the tracks, for this re-release. pdf booklet and a wallpaper (as well as another surprise) included with the download.

Track 1, "City of the Sun" is a remixed version that was included on the 2011 re-release of "Cahokia."
Track 2, "LightTools" is an re-structured, re-mastered edit of the long form album of the same name from 2006.
Track 4, "Another Kind of Time" (slightly altered title from original) is a re-mastered version from my 2007 release, "Twlightmind."
Track 5, "Song for Illumination," from the 2006 "Awakensong," has been entirely re-mastered.
Track 6, "We Could Not Be Viewed with the Naked Eye," is an alternate mix of the track included on 2008's "Because We Were Once Covered in Gold."
Track 7, "Through the Lens of Love" is from my 2008 Hypnos Secret Sounds release, "Bridge to Nowhere."
Track 8, "Pale Blue Orb," is an edited and re-structured version of a long form that later became the 2010 double long form release on Relaxed Machinery, "Coniunctio."
Track 9, "Golden Cloud" is taken from my 2009 Hypnos Secret Sounds release, "Children of Alcyone."
