Album Notes
Approximately 30 minutes in length.

This album was created over the course of one year spent in the lush Pacific Northwest, in alternating cycles of field recording, instrumental arrangement, and electronic composition. Unlike many artists who simply "add" field recordings to their music, the composer listened meticulously to match the actual pitches of the sonic landscape around her with the acoustic music. The result is a fascinating tapestry of sounds in a subtle composition that uses harmony and dissonance with intention and meaning.

Kelvin Pittman plays alto sax in the beginning of Part II.
The end of Part II features the melodic humming of 200 members of congregation Havurah Shalom.
Due to a mastering error, the entire piece begins 30 seconds into the first track.

I love this album. It makes me dream strange things.

warm sonic background textures
Nice little environmental CD. Low profile, but still interesting and engaging. I think it could be listened to as "Background music for the 3rd millenium."

The first track has water sounds. The second track has low fog horn tones that are warm and full. After the song finally ends, the room seems empty; like a good friend has just left.

The CD appears to be hand manufactured 54/100. The textured paint and stenciling give the look and feel of a quality work of art.

Well done.

Fascinating and oddly soothing... The mixture of \"natural\", landscape sounds with more \"man-made\" noises begs the question: what is nature? And also, if these elements are artfully and intentionally combined: what is music? I found the album to be almost meditative, the juxtaposition of sounds creating waves of felt intensity, and finally, a deep rest. Amazing!
