Dissolving Silent MP3

The holidays may be behind us, but holiday music isn’t necessarily. Courtesy of the Dark Winter netlabel ( comes a refreshing take on “Silent Night.” This “Shepherds Quake” remix employs a music box version of the song, which both through its own inherent design and some significant digital manipulation dissolves over the course of its playing (MP3). There’s something particularly dreamy about hearing “Silent Night” evaporate mid-hearing. More info on the credited artist, Archive (aka Mike Hallenbeck), at
