Halcyon Chamber is an electronic ambient project born on December 31st, 2013 during an unforgiving winter ice storm. Jason Baron created a basement studio where melodic soundscapes were coaxed from classical and digital instrumentation, providing warm refuge. Halcyon Chamber intertwines analogue synthesizers, female vocalizations, classical strings, meditative sections, and shimmering melody. A gentle, evolving mixture of chamber music and electricity.
The Halcyon is a mythical bird with the power to calm the rough seas and quiet the waves during the harsh winter solstice. Each song is considered to be an individual halcyon chamber, a small containment of this mythical calmness into a fleeting physical existence.
