The debut release for Stimulus Progression and LFZ.
Two 20+ minute long tracks. Fair Winds & Following Seas is a multi-movement piece for electric guitar, some synthesizer, and a plethora of analog and digital effects. It is an instrumental journey through the conceptual phenomena of life and death. Some parts are reminiscent of Fripp & Eno, others Riley-esque minimalism and improvisation with aspects of New Age ambience. The piece culminates in dark and stirring doom riffs without knuckle dragging and sets you down softly via meditative synthesizer tones.
Infinite Regress is another expansive piece, this time for live programmed sequencer, which plays upon rhythmic variable, repetition, analog manipulation, and filtering.
