This is the main page of Harleif Langas, I work with various musical and photographic projects as I see fit. As Northaunt I have recorded ambient music since 1996 and played live for more than a decade now, I also record as 'Therradaemon' and 'The human voice'. I have a new site for my photography that I'm working on, you can also check out my FLICKR account if you like. Welcome.

CURRENT PROJECTS AND STATUS
Working slowly on a conceptual album for Glacial movements, I hope
to make soundscapes with a sense of open space and blowing snow,
desolate winter fields, this is all good things in my book so I expect a
pretty light album this time. Also I'm now starting to look into releaseing
an album of unreleased tracks from the last years.
- THE HUMAN VOICE
The New album was finally released after some label problems.
The sound of this is melancholic minimal ambient with piano and loops Cyclic law records. Samples HERE
My project for more ominous sounds and drones,
The first cd was released in December 2011 on Cyclic law.
