Review: phenomenal musicianship!. While it sounds like several instruments performing dreamscapes together, it is in reality one man with a 6-string electric bass jamming with himself. He can hit some really high notes, as well. He also employs some electronics and uses the acoustics of the studio as another instrument. Ambient music fans will also dig this. All tracks original except #11.

Track Review (favorites denoted by *):
1/ Aldebaran (4:29) - slow almost silent opening with a cloud-like texture, incorporating shimmering high notes> fade
*2/ Provenance ((6:11) - fingerpicking start slides into a multi-tracked jam with atmospheric sounds and what sounds like a guitar on top> fade
3/ Three Thirteen (3:13) - midtempo and fade
*4/ Squizzle - high bass starts> uptempo funk and ringing harmonics> quick stop
*5/ Trails Crossing (6:44) - guitar-like start> electronic soundscape with contemplative melodic playing (like a walk in a park in early morning with flocks of birds appearing> slides into fingerpicking and slow fade
6/ Traces Of A Song (3:50) - guitar-like start. slow tempo with an electronic bed> fade
*7/ Pendulum (5:50) - slow high notes shimmer> deep bass notes added over electronic landscape> swells to midtempo & fades
8/ Banyan Waltz (5:37) - quiet start> slow tempo lovely melody> slow fade
9/ Pulse (4:27) - pulsing guitar sound starts and fades
*10/ Dance (4:52) - heavy bass notes start> false stop> uptempo repetitive guitar-like riff with electronic overdubs & bass notes> fade
11/ Garden Of Silence (5:46) - solid notes start> slow tempo> slow fade
*12/ plucked strings slow start swells to uptempo guitar-like solo & fade
