Written from 2011-2020, this is a progressive rock instrumental EP. Based on 2 musical themes, it combines mostly new pieces, with some older parts from recordings mixed in. It's a work of music I always should have done, but never did. In some places you can hear tape hiss from old recordings on a portable tape deck or from out takes at Wisseloord studio. And magnetic bleed through from old reel to reel tapes where faint audio transferred into layered tape like a reverse echo.
