Bitter Sweet

Bitter Sweet includes 9 tracks of lush, textural electronic music, including two different mixes of "Dark Decorum: The Gothic Charm School Theme Song." It also features vocals by Sataray and Vanessa Skantze.

Bitter Sweet builds on the highlights of my earlier releases, with intricate rhythms and layers of dark sonic imagery, contrasted with orchestral samples and haunting female vocals. The songs range from the Gothic dance track "Dark Decorum" to the heavy, ominous industrial beats of "Fuligin" to the sensuous trip-hop stylings of "Wisteria" and "Passageway." This album has a more consistent, less noisy sound than much of my previous work, and will appeal to a wide range of electronic music fans.

"Seattleā€™s Celadon builds a gothic symphony of dark neo-classical electronics and instrumentals that serve as meditative ouvres." - ZapTown
