Release Info

Other worlds, other dimensions and glimpses behind the veil. A strange beautiful music brewed up on this release, this album born out of dark and experimental sessions led to a bold new direction for me. Deep space pics along with some of my light photography were the visual backdrop while this project was created. My studio really became a vehicle traveling in a void of sound, exploring a place I plan to visit again. Also of note a reorganizing of my studio, new software and this being my first album using VST synths, led to even more experimentation from the edge of the abyss.

Really wonderful album. It's true it is darker, but it's very nicely textured and shaded, packed with subtleties that Chris' music is so accomplished at. Really shows Chris' range of feeling and expression beautifully.

Steve said that so well... I couldn't agree more.

Congrats on the album, especially 'Outlands' is really my cup of tea; diverse but still serene.
