The Retracer 03:53
Do you want to see the root of the end? There’s a part of you In the strands you choose A path you’ve left To retain what’s you Through the rot and truths All are intertwined Slim chances to Infect their Cracking Fragmented Entropic Lonely Droning Recursive draining deaths Their strands to feed the End of ends Frays of my strands Will retrace what's left of you
2.
We're not the same Supplanted in two bodies That causality Would shed in fleeting seconds Knotting up in me Are phantoms all we are? Entangled intuition Is something I have lost We're not the same Streaking spectres On the run From a meaningless Ending Parse my mind Before we're pulled inside Within our blackest folds There's no restraint left on the words untold I'll preserve you Before I leave this space I can always feel your pain White within the dark It's knotting up in me In Blackfolds under a Blanked out ill delusion You're something I have lost
3.
Emergent One 04:40
Count the waves In perfect phase Over and over Not to sway But I sought A glimpse of time Preceding my own light We'd better see it now That breaking away from the chasm would leave us all alone Fuck We'll emerge as one And replace this outcome We'll revert the suns/sums And say where this begun Emerge as one Replace this outcome Reverse the sums/suns Just say where this begun When you talk, your time is leaking Constants broken, edges bleeding To leave I thought to bend The past that flows From the end We're concurrently estranged In all we've lost in here But the worst will shift to red If I can't find you We'll emerge as one Replace this outcome Reverse the sums To a place when this Begun Your fragments shred To the surface Solace ends here But I won't see you Leave When you talk Your time is bleeding Constants broken Edges beating
4.
Selfsimilar 05:42
When I observe you Reflections fracture through Bends in the shadowed arcs That twist the last of me from you So all at once Our shapes undone If this all that's left here (gone) I choose to not regret this (none) This path is least resistant (of all) And that's how we'll know we were Wrong Will this transform hold? I took the damaged half that was left of the whole Is this not repeating? This is the time if you wanted to Breakaway AwayAwayAwayAway (to an) Impossible disguise Where it is a fight to stay hidden I can idolize the mark you've left in me Through a line that sought One I fell too far between Where the silence is a death scream If for a moment we re-encounter Let's not repeat the same outcome This is the time if you wanted to Break away This is the time if you wanted to Break away

Ancient warmth Beneath a rare Sleeping chance To leave someway We're formless We're too many We're formless We'll leave someday
6.
Solace 08:50
I pull this hopeless state And slide in to my shade Feeling a curse Bruise and singe Through a screaming rapid shockwave And so we fall To our wreckages below They dot the skyline in bleak horizon The sound of letting go I can feel that emotion Evaporate like rain A moment we can recollect That I'm hoping will not fray away again Hit ground intact Taken aback from impact Alone and unscathed Accustomed to this game we play Nothing I could change Would free us from this phase refrained Bonded to to a frequency That's cycling independently Onward Through this fear we feel the same Subdued and tranquilized On a medicated train Through vacant spaces Racing To retrace every Thought Through the frames of faded stars Where I could hold this time and Tear apart this darkness folding Autumn’s cold wings Wrapped around this incubated Solace Entangled in Sorrow Untangled in Solace Entangled in Sorrow Untangled in Solace If I wait Will you still be there?
7.
Now we've crossed that line Hope you've no regrets, because we're not turning back We've left them behind I knew The Void would come to be Never thought that it would Shape me Now I've Seen your light slow And fold in shadow to the always In between everything, all or nothing Is safe, from ending It was defined by my and you Fold in shadow to the always In between everything, all or nothing can change Ascending only would curve right back to you Hold your pattern through the spiral Thread your strands and I will find you there Your dot recedes to the farthest point As the voices I hear become the phantoms we both sho Through The Shadowsphere Through the horizon pulling out I couldn't watch you spin forever and never reach for your hand Why would I want to live forever if I'd never see you again? Safe, from ending It was defined by me and you Fold in shadow to the always In between everything, all or nothing can change Ascending only would curve right back to you The universe I promised to Preserve when I had abandoned you Voices I hear are the phantoms we both show Through the shadowsphere From the horizon blowing out Fraying are the strands we chose Dimmly Now I've seen Your Light Slow And fold in shadow To the always In between everything All or nothing Is safe
8.
The Voidless 04:35
We'll find another way To relive the lives We've left behind For nothing And when we're caught Point your fear to me We'll blood let our phantoms To bleach the seas As singular We can't divide Impotent lesson learned In ending times We dream in Voidless Pattern weaving End to end We've tried End to End End to End End to End Ends In Voidless In Solace

about

FiXT is proud to announce Comaduster as the inaugural signing to the label's newest division – FiXT Labs! To celebrate this partnership, FiXT and Comaduster are excited to re-release the 2017 sci-fi concept album Solace along with a special remastered edition of the critically acclaimed 2013 Electronic/IDM album, Hollow Worlds, ahead of new material later in Fall/Winter 2018. Plus, for the first time ever, the instrumental versions of each track from Hollow Worlds will be available in November 2018.

Artist Quote:

Solace is a science fiction concept album, and the long awaited follow up to 2013’s ‘Hollow Worlds’ album. The themes conveyed touch on entropy, extreme time-scales, and how those can impact intelligence, emotion, and identity.

A simple group of non-corporeal lifeforms called ‘The Void’ are the only sentience to remain and are clinging to the last vestiges of energy left in a universe going dark.

Heatdeath is upon them, but forces beyond their understanding will pull some of them into worlds well beyond the breadth of their experience.

Overwhelmed by paradox and on the verge of the final darkness, some of these beings try to survive and make sense of what is set before and behind them. Strands can be unravelled here to parallel human ‘mental illness’.

I don't want to be vague. The emotional weight expressed through this story mirrors my own struggles with Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Dissociative and Depersonalization issues, Anxiety/Panic, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Sometimes seemingly insurmountable issues can only be expressed through art and metaphor.

From my own perspective, the idea of ‘mental illness’ has become some what of an umbrella catch all for a myriad of distinct problems or situations. It’s kind of become a banner to compartmentalize a lot of difficult to discuss, and largely individual issues. Awareness is up. Unfortunately it’s still misunderstood, generalized, and now politicized. There are spectrums where a lot of us choose to see a single point.

I can’t say I have any answers. But this album is a cyclical expression of one of many stories that will continue to repeat.

Included is a custom made PDF booklet that contains the lyrics, and an index to provide some insight and context for the science fiction concept of the record.

I hope you enjoy, and thank you for the continued support from everyone! I’m extremely happy that this record and it’s world have found a home at FiXT!
