A flux in time gives way to a mysterious new dimension of ambient atmospheric and melodic energy.

Quotes: “Listened to it again last night. It's really good. My thoughts were, if you can do that on a shoestring budget, imagine what you could do with a full studio. :) “ Steve Deckert, Decware.com
Engineering Missions: To challenge the current intellectual model by creating an album entirely in alternative tuning/temperament. To show, not for the sake of arrogance but for the sake of artistic necessity, that human creativity doesn't have to be intimidated by the "big shiny expensive" world of the mainstream music industry. To show that vision/scope, ingenuity and heart, has the potential to out perform a big budget, any day that said principles are believed in. To show that simplicity does not automatically equal inferiority.
