about

Something very new and very, very ambient. Guitar textures achieved with pieces of scientific glassware, cigarette lighters, breath, a timpani mallet (thanks Geoff!) experimentation with under-powered active pickups (thanks Josh!), and my housemate's violin bow (thanks Samantha!).

The whole album is inspired by temperature and is dedicated to my amazing Australian Music Group friends. I guess while even empires have to fall from time to time, I trust there is still bread on the table xo

All sounds made by one guitar, one loop pedal, one computer and one take. And a few different picks.
