Quite remarkably, all four tracks are improvised on guitar, analog drum machine, the Hammond-esque Italian Crumar synth, Korg and Realistic Moog - no overdubs in sight - transposing a flawless, realtime flow of moods and atmosphere straight to tape. On the thirteen minute opener 'Trajectory Rhythms' burbling machine pulses entwine with cyclical, gaseous guitar notes on a slow but steady curve into the unknown, gradually expanding as they ascend until we're almost suffering altitude sickness (or is that just acid belly?) and left dazed and alleviated.

MP3 / V0 (VBR)
Justin Wright tends to the epic fields of kosmiche heaven with a majestic trip recorded during the same sessions as his modern classic from 2010, 'Where Does Your Mind Go?'. Again assisted by Matt Hill aka Umberto, these four tracks, recorded at Black Dirt Studios by Jason Meagher, survey aerial vistas and droning scapes as involving as anything we've heard from Expo 70. Meanwhile with 'Seven Serpents' he calls upon the desert bound spirit of recent Earth records and Terry Riley meditations; curling, freeform-Gospel-like Crumar phrases layer into dense, intoxicating drones. But the most powerful piece is 'Growing Mushrooms Of Potency', where moire synth patterns form grid coordinates across the dark sky, blurred with a head-tilting dissonance until elegant machine rhythms syncopate and sketch out pluming constellations across the mind's eye.
