Thanks for your feedback. No need for you to feel any reluctance in your comments. You're right, Migration is more spartan than Wolf. My sound on Migration was dominated by a minimalist approach not only in structure but in instrumentation. I also made a conscious effort to (mostly) avoid violin on that release, though it's my main instrument. The sound on Wolf is much fuller because I had better equipment and more channels to work with, I had started acquiring more instruments, and I had just added my first two real electronic polyphonic keyboards to my sound--a Korg DSS-1 sampler and a cheap Casio digital synth (the CZ-101). I think of Wolf as a transition album--some elements of space music, some of a world progressive sound, but I was still working it out. If Wolf was the egg, then Migration was the embryo. Years ago I had been planning to reissue Wolf because I would periodically get requests for it but never seemed to get around to it. When it finally happened, I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to add in Migration, since that was a vinyl only release. Since the music is over 20 years old, I'm not surprised that some of it has aged better (or worse) than other parts, but hopefully, you found enough in it to find it worth the trouble.
I'm especially pleased that you enjoyed Unbound. That release is a bit of a departure from my other releases on Projekt, in that is more hardcore ambient soundscape. I know it may not be as appealing to those who prefer my world progressive style, but it's something I wanted to do.
