about

Following on from where Spero left off, the Messiah’s prophesied arrival is imminent:

As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet:
“A voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him. Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth. And all people will see God’s salvation.’” – Luke 3: 4-6

“Regnum Caelorum” is Latin for “Kingdom of Heaven” – in this piece, I wanted to try and include both the preparation for its arrival (the breathy, pulsing pads), but also glimpses inside it through the simple and innocent piano line (Matt 19:14), the wide-open strings (Matt 22: 1-14) and its immersive sound (Gospel of Thomas: Saying 3).

- Simon

“Regnum Caelorum (waag_aa001_2-4)” is the second of four pieces by Simon Slator that are designed for the season of Advent. The four soundscapes that make up this first “Ambient Advent” collection are intended for contemplation and meditation during this busy period.

This series is brought to you in conjunction with Slator’s new endeavour - a netlabel called “Dischi Senza Parole” - which is loosely translated as “wordless records”. All funds raised will be passed to him to help seed his work.
