about

I never ever intended to do a new-age album, but if I ever have done one this is it, being largely atmospheric and drone/tone based, with long drawn-out developments.
It's all pretty unconventional stuff though, showcasing how you can do music on a guitar synth that is unlike anything else on earth. Some subtle Midi control directed to an analogue synth makes for some weird chunky stuff on a couple of tracks, and I added crackle and modulation effects using the Alesis AirFX. Only rarely do you hear actual guitar!

Track 7. Epilog (download only bonus with complete album)
