Mnemosyne Productions, the company owned/operated by partners Ihsahn (EMPEROR frontman) and wife Ihriel (real name: Heidi S. Tveitan; PECCATUM) since 2003, has struck up a deal with UK's Candlelight Records for the release of the new album by Ihriel's STAROFASH solo project. Entitled "The Thread", the CD will include collaborations with the German musician and composer Markus Reuter and the Japanese cyber-punk writer Kenji Siratori. Musically this album "explores new ground in instrumentation and structure, yet continues the cinematic and elegant atmosphere of previous recordings," according to a press release. "Over constantly changing sonic sceneries, the compelling melody is still the leading thread from beginning to end."

STAROFASH's debut album, "Iter.Viator" (2002),was described in a press release as "a poetic and graceful drama, a melancholic movement over strings, guitars, keyboards, drums and voices, echoing CURRENT 93, early DEAD CAN DANCE and CRAIG ARMSTRONG soundtracks. This album pushes the boundaries of traditional genre categorization and instrument usage, while remaining true to a soulful pattern that is Heidi S. Tveitan's alone. 'Iter.Viator' also presents guest appearances by members of EMPEROR and ULVER."

Mnemosyne Productions was established as an outlet for Ihsahn and Ihriel's musical collaborations as well a place for new talent and innovative artists.
