About the album:
Completely done behind closed doors, and in somewhat secrecy from even the old bag and the little one who shares the apartment with me. A strange affair full of poor recording techniques and overly thought out ideas. But it was not a solo effort at all and is based all around that old bag and the little one I share my space, my time, and heart with.

    The minimalism on this is so different from the standard drones and tones normally found in this type of ambient music.

    Great stuff!!

    finally got around to listening to this. in a weird way, the first half or so of the title track, particularly minutes 16-23 or so remind me of a more minimal version of vladislav delay’s early work (multila and particularly entain) which i always thought was a really interesting avenue that he’s since abandoned for much more concrete and unmysterious music. great stuff dude!
