"Lilium" (meant to mean "fortress") started as a solo-project of Pascal Humbert
, 16 Horsepower

", a mainly instrumental creation, which was released in 2000. Lilium now is a duo-project after 16 Horsepower drummer Jean-Yves Tola
joined Humbert. As a double act they have so far released one album, "Short Stories
", which came out in 2003.
Humbert worked on "Transmission Of All The Good-Byes" from 1984 until 2000. The album was released at the end of October 2000 on Glitterhouse Records.
"Short Stories", the second album, is a co-operation between Pascal Humbert and Jean-Yves Tola and features guest appearances from among others David Eugene Edwards (of Woven Hand
and 16 Horsepower

), Daniel McMahon
and Tom Barman
