      Simon's work using field recordings began when he was invited to join a
      group of visual artists on a trip to Iceland in December 2005, with a view to
      producing a piece to accompany the work the visual artists would create.

      He gathered the sounds of waterfalls, footsteps in snow, ice cracking,
      gangplanks of whaling ships creaking – anything that would inspire composition.
      However, the recordings themselves were the perfect soundtrack, a sonic portrait
      of Iceland.

      The finished pieces were released as a download album, entitled Dark Light
      Audio Tracks, by netlabel Filament Recordings, in June 2006 and has now been
      reissued by Earth Monkey along with a new reworking of the recordings, called
      A Dark Light - Winter Lights Edition
