This album is the original, unedited version. I uploaded a Special version to Spotify that's about 20 min shorter to fit their time size and it just makes more sense. But at least here you get to hear it all.
If you're a member of bandcamp and you buy this album your face will be below the album, this allows others to see who purchased the album. This is a great way to tell people what kind of music you love, and you'll have other musicians on your fan page, in turn supporting them as well.

New update: To understand this album one should listen to it in a whole, it tells a story that only the author understands, but not in words only feeling. If you happen to listen to all of it then maybe you'll pick up on this as well.
This album was a show I did on 'date above' issuing forth bodies of sound that engulf the senses, broken beats and melodies, unusual time signatures, and dialog from 4 different Documentary sources.
If you took your thoughts and dipped them into some ‘viscose liquid’ and pull them out, you would get this, dreamy, escape music, riddled with elements of Retro feelings and techno at times. As if someone tapped into your subconscious and found them there playing infinitely. Or to reach into your past and find them there,’ waiting’ to be heard again in a different light. Like swimming in an endless sea of notes and letters that someone lost, written on old parchment. Thoughts, shapes and vibes all rolled into one. Broken down into album format, each song having it’s own name to fit the mood.
Reserving the right to create whatever feel I wanted, you'll also hear influences of Techno, House and other things unknown to the ear.
INFO: Setup time took about 2 weeks, due to finding the sources of dialog and setting up these documentary sources in sampler. Great effort was taken to find the right feel. Greater steps were taken to select the right synth sounds, create drum patterns, effects, sequences and the like, not to mention complex routing in ReWire from Renoise to Albeton. Created spontaneously in 1 hour and 30 mn time.
Supplemental: When I create these shows I don't know the outcome of the music, so the ending results are always a thrill to listen to. I do however create structured music, and both worlds are different. Enjoy.
