A [shadowy] mix of ambient, glitch & drone; soft, aurally oriented attacks: ambient slowly morphing into drone & glitch.
Crafted in solitude, honed in isolation & remixed in a vacuum with an industrial fan (for background atmosphere & audio balancing). Mixed using tracks purchased from the L-NE & Serein ambient labels + an old, polished, chestnut closer courtesy of Mr. David Robert Jones.
A “Shout-Out” to The Slow Drift radio program for highlighting the Fullerton Whitman track on an earlier show.
The inspiration for this project came from the cover image; a photo (of a lone beach pier barricade), taken this past August while walking along the shoreline on vacation; the protagonist, so to speak, of the muse behind the initial idea.

16 David Bowie (w/ Brian Eno*)- Art Decade
*"Despite Bowie being credited solely for the song Brian Eno has said he was responsible for saving the song from the out-take pile. The original piece was recorded on a piano, with both Eno and Bowie playing. "[w]hen we'd finished it he didn't like it very much and sort of forgot about it. But as it happened, during the two days he was gone I...dug that out to see if I could do anything with it. I put all those instruments on top of what we had and then he liked it and realised there was hope for it, and he worked on top of that adding more instruments."
