after many years of trying to complete this album, it's finally here, in the most complete form it'll ever be.
spanning almost 10 years of work, this album encompasses all aspects of the sounds of musique concrète. there are a lot of tracks that ended up getting cut, in an effort to try and not make this a bloated mess.
i've been putting off releasing this, as it has always felt unfinished. there's always something that i want to tweak, or change, or add to. most recently i've been trying to write lyrics, and put some words to the music, but there's nothing coming. i need to let this one go, so i can move on to other projects, and start something fresh, so here it is, as good as it'll get.
those who have listened to my previous work will recognize a lot of sounds that overlap with the self-titled album, as well as the follow-up, "mistake". some of that is likely because some of the ideas on this album were initially written back then. there are also some surprises in store, showing the evolution of my music, my writing, and my musical tastes. my influences today are much broader than they were 10 years ago, and i hope that listeners enjoy how things have changed.
special thanks to Roman Volikov for his lead guitar work and contribution to the album. You made it unique and fresh, bringing something that I couldn't have on my own.
