awesome! let me know what you think of things, or if you have any questions. each track is a specific memory for me... and i love the opportunities to remember them. example being; on the first track, from 2005, 2:40 onward, there is the sound of a ceiling fan running on a hot summer night. which i recorded while lying on the floor (under the influence) arm outstretched with a microphone recording to a cassette recorder.

yes just the dw-8000 for synthesizer sounds. and some non musical outdoor chimes. and. actually the sound of an apartment building burning down in the winter of 2006. i stood maybe 500 feet away with an 80s portable teac tape recorder. THOUGH most of the crackling noise you hear is actually ice being walked on by me and my brother going to/from the fire.

I agree, more love it's all we need, hehe... Now, seriously, good stuff, and it would be good to hear about the production on all tracks. Not surprisingly, the tracks with the Ion have a harsher, "stronger", vibe... but all very atmospheric, just the way I like it...
