The material on this album was recorded in 2010, but never quite found the right avenue for release until now. Some of the pieces were intended for an EP called "Elementals", but the label that wanted to release it closed shop before it could be finalized. Other pieces were collected under the name "True Light" and passed around locally in very limited hand-made CDR editions, but never considered a proper release. Eventually, a few pieces ended up on Soundcloud. This album collects all of these pieces, while a pair of outtakes from the same sessions will be included on the forthcoming "Temples" remaster.
While the material feels a bit dated to me now, I am still very happy with how these pieces turned out and feel that they capture a unique expression of creativity that occurred during a period of major transition in my life.
Deep listening with headphones is recommended for this album.
