Thanks for letting us know. I really liked the feel of this and bought it.

Great work! I love music that 'rests' in a specific, almost 'neutral' state like this. It is non-didactic and both relaxing and very intense and interesting at the same time. Thank you.

Really like the sound design on "Signal And Serenade".

Thank you for the kind words. And thanks, Robert, for buying a copy!...

I really enjoy making sounds that try to express pure mood- something that may be ominous and unsettling, but at the same time, relaxing and immersive.

I enjoyed the first few tracks. But then my daughter told me to turn if off because it was making her feel unsettled.  :)

Dim the lights, sit back and watch the 'Dusk Gives Way To Night' video:

 Thank you! Everything about Dyatlov Pass as always interesting.  How did you hear about that accident?

I read an online article about it a couple of years ago. It's an intriguing story and a fascinating mystery- even though I think there's a lot of wild speculation and mythology built around it.

'Rainhill' video: a dark kaleidoscope of deserted corridors and passageways...

Hey, this album is right up my alley! Dirty, grainy, industrial ambient... but underneath all the lo-fi murk there are strange and curious meandering melodies that come and go. Good work! Reminds me a lot of Optical Frameworks- Surrounded Fog, but without the dub influence.

The most effective track for me is "Dyatlov Pass", with that lost choir fading in and out of the mix. Incredibly moving...

Hilarious. I was listening to this last night and, once again, my daughter asked me to turn it off. You're freaking out 8-year olds in the US! (I think it is a great release, however!)

Heh! Well, this music would've freaked out my wife and son too, so I listened to it with headphones. It didn't freak ME out!

Nice low-end sounds. I actually tried to do some recordings before with nothing but really low frequency sounds but they didn't turn out well. This is much better.
