Progmetalhero Michael Gagen's contemplative ambient is just so painfully beautiful. Your body aches from aural pleasure. Favorite track: schadenfreude.

about

Put simply, I'm 28 years old and I go through phases where art begins to lose its lustre and generally feels like parlour tricks. To combat it, every night for 7 days I wrote a new song. I didn't think too much, didn't edit too harshly, and tried not to question my ideas or my flow. I was finished edit and export by the 9th day.

The process resulted in a dark and pretty album of seven tracks inspired by seven themes: impermanence, patience, wabi-sabi, love, memory, nostalgia and masochism. Free as always, please take a copy.

Happy new year, my wonderful friends. I hope your 2014 is beautiful.
