Natural Snow Buildings

Natural Snow Buildings is a duo from France, consisting of artists Mehdi Ameziane and Solange Gularte. They play music which can be classified as experimental psychedelic folk with drone elements and ambient influences. Formed in 1997, they released numerous albums, many of them in extremely limited quantities. Double album “The Dance of the Moon and the Sun” is their most popular work so far. Both members of Natural Snow Buildings release music also as solo artists: Mehdi Ameziane as TwinSisterMoon and Solange Gularte as Isengrind.

The beginnings of Natural Snow Buildings can be traced back to 1997, at a Paris university. They both met in their school library where a movie was playing. Mehdi had been invited to a party that evening but declined and headed to the library instead. After their first meeting, the two saw more of each other. Although Mehdi could play a bit of guitar and Solange was a classically trained musician, the two had not yet begun making music. It was in May 1998 that the two officially started their band and began home recording their music. They self-released two cassettes, Witch-Season and Two Sides of a Horse in 1999 and 2000, and in 2001 recorded Ghost Folks, released in 2003. Then, they self-released a double CD, The Winter Ray, in a limited edition, and, after moving from Paris to Vitré in 2004, recorded The Dance of the Moon and the Sun (released in 2006). They then each issued solo material before producing more material as a duo. Most of their albums have only been released in small numbers, often in hand-crafted limited editions. Their work has been compared with such bands as Popol Vuh, Flying Saucer Attack, and Tower Recordings. They make many references to the horror film genre in their songtitles; for example Santa Sangre (with the track 'Santa Sangre Part I & II' on 'Daughter of Darkness'), The Blair Witch Project (The track 'Mary Brown' on 'Dance of the Moon and the Sun' is a reference to a character from this film) and director John Carpenter (a track on 'Dance of the Moon and the Sun').

  5. Many thanks Zlobnykloun for all the wonderful music ! In the past I downloaded almost everything but lately I've started buying CDs again - but it's great to pick up rare out of print stuff, vinyl rips and cassette rips, so a big thank-you !
    Could I ask you if you have cassette #4 of I Dream of Drone ? The links above point to cassettes #1,#2 and #3. Tape #5 is Between The Real And The Shadow which is a separate link above, so cassette #4 Norns is the only one missing. It's impossible to get anywhere ! Many thanks again !
