Thespian Drummer There is so much poetry in this song - in the entire body of work, limitless poetry. Beyond ethereal, their beauty found, each one, in simplicity. Every song is a painting, images of Life unbound by the imagination of love. Favorite track: southbound formations.

Berkdrums This is painting with sounds... incredible... My wintersoundtrack for next season -2017/2018- To me it's as if the sounds on this album are being made & played outdoors with the specific damped acoustic sounds when there's some heavy snow outside...

Ludvig Cimbrelius halfway through the second track and i'm quite sure i've never been touched by music before as i am by this. perhaps i am more open on this night than i've ever been before, perhaps it is the music. perhaps both. breathtaking. Favorite track: southbound formations.

Running time: 49:10

This collection of songs was composed specifically for sleep and reflects my memories of winters growing up in Cleveland... The endless gray skies, the magic of a fresh blanket of snow, and more wonder still once Lake Erie transforms into a vast, frozen desert. The music brings me to my favorite lakeside park, standing with waves of solid ice below and a pale sky above. All is silent but for a flock of geese in the distance, making its way to warmer land...

Some of my earliest attempts at ambient music were selected to be in this mix, namely 'lake-effect' and 'the park at night'. 'southbound formations' features a sound that I hope to later expand into an entire album, as I've long loved the nostalgic effect of a piano washed in reverb. 'quilted' and 'when the sun is a stranger' are experiments with the drone or minimal sound, and 'clouds of breath' comes from a batch of similar tracks I recored at the start of this season.

Thank you for listening ^_^
