The listener is guided through evolving imaginary landscapes where the gray area between synthesized sounds and their natural counterparts is explored. Electronic gestures and polyrhythms harmonize with field recordings of the bustling cities, temples and rainforests of Southeast Asia. Technology is not used to infringe upon ecological and cultural soundscapes, but accentuates their musical and ephemeral nature.


Mastered by Paul Keeley. Cover design by Michael Jachner.
