Seefeel's producer and collaborator Mark Van Hoen recorded albums of
Aphex Twin-ian ambient electronic dance music
The Last Flowers From The Darkness (Touch, 1997), which
collects recordings from 1992 to 1996, and
Playing with Time (1998).
His best venture into this style was probably
Weathered Well (1994), released under the moniker Locust.
The cosmic tranquillity of Still and the
mysterious, exotic atmosphere of Prospero
the comic, tribal techno-polka of Weathered Gate
and the Caribbean industrial Music About Love.
In Remembrance Of Times Past (1994) and
Natural Composite (1994) assemble music dating back to 1982.
Truth Is Born of Arguments (1995) embraced
industrial dance in
Truth Is Born Of Arguments and Penetration.
Unfortunately it sags after these two vibrant initial pieces.
Locust became a song-oriented project on
Morning Light (1998), that employed guest vocalists; an idea
replicated on the "quadrophonic" Wrong (2001), consisting of two
CDs to be played simultaneously on two devices. Both albums feature cute
moments but are hardly revolutionary.
After The Warmth Inside You (Very Friendly, 2004) he was silent for
several years. Relocating to New York in 2008, he concocted
hodgepodges of mildly danceable atmospheric electronica such as
Where Is the Truth (City Centre Offices, 2010).
The Revenant Diary (Editions Mego, 2012) resurrected early
Van Hoen experiments, as did
The Worcester Tapes 1983-1987 (2017).
Locust returned with the mediocre
You'll Be Safe Forever (2013), which sounds like a collection of
leftovers, and After The Rain (2014), which contains the angelic
neoclassical madrigal of To Lonely Shores.
Van Hoen also released the seven computer collages of
Invisible Threads (Touch, 2018).
