Noveliss of Detroit group Clear Soul Forces releases visuals for “Sincerity and Reverence” off his upcoming album “Book of Changes”, which is scheduled to be released November 19th.
The first collaboration album between Noveliss and Dixon Hill comes in the form of a concept album based on the I Ching or ‘Book of Changes’. The track list was constructed using the ancient text and its overall theme stems from the wisdom therein.
Conceived, written, and recorded in isolation, ‘Book of Changes’ sets Noveliss as a hermetic sage seeking balance and enlightenment over Dixon Hill’s ethereal musical backdrops.
Dixon Hill used samples, live instruments, and field recordings to create the sonic template for this record. Each song transition smoothly from one to another using melodic elements and natural sounds to tether the songs together for a cohesive listening experience.
Noveliss is as lyrical as ever, weaving complex rhymes through Hill’s melodic boom bap. The lyrical themes on this album deal with feelings of isolation, meditation, balance, travel, and Taoist wisdom.
Each song corresponds with a different section of the I Ching and is represented by a Hexagram from each section. Listeners can discover a deeper meaning in each track by referencing the Hexagrams on the back cover. The album is meant to be played on repeat for full effect.
