The majority of this was recorded live at the Awakenings gig on March 12th 2016. I'm hugely grateful to Phil Booth for recording it and also for the photos. Without him this wouldn't exist. Existing is the topic of my recent novel, incidentally. The novel is called Liminal Entity, not incidentally, and is approximately as clear as this opening paragraph.

I have to be so concise and boring when uploading to iTunes. Not here. :)

Interestingly (at least to me), the addition of the final element to my live sound - ambient mush - is down to another Awakenings stalwart, Jez Creek. The mush is created by a delay Jez likes (the DD20), plus my RC-505 looper. Here it's fed with the Blofeld and also some prepared Minimoog noises, all given the 'broken timestretch' treatment.

I am indebted to Andy Pickford for mastering this and introducing some of the Binar production magic that has made our recent release (Another Day in La-La-Land) the best yet. Yes, so that's an advert for my novel and for a Binar album all nicely wrapped up. :)

The album is dedicated to the memory of Oliver Sacks for reasons that may or may not be apparent.
