S/H is an anthology of rare and unreleased solo works by former Emeralds member Steve Hauschildt. Handpicked from eight years of home recordings, S/H is an archival work which delves into the inner workings of both his own music and his contribution to Emeralds' sound. Much of Steve's work has lay dormant for many years but S/H gives the listener a personal tour of his canon from 2005-2012.
Steve's music was initially born out of the mid-2000's Midwestern noise scene. But instead of creating harsh noise, he reconﬁgured and reappropriated techniques from Berlin School, Drone, New Age & other forms of electronic music to create something wholly his own. This two disc set ranges from short electronic sketches to full-blown synthesizer suites. Most of this material is unreleased, with a few essential rarities that appeared on cassette and CDR releases for such imprints as Mike Pollard's Arbor, Chris Madak's Deception Island and Hauschildt's now-defunct label, Gneiss Things.
