2005 release originally released through Absolute Zero Media and now out-of-print. It's one massive 50+ minute excursion, divided into three tracks for Bandcamp.

Manifold Records described it thusly:

One fantastic piece of powerful, undulating ambient - often rising into stained vacuums of oppressive density. I played my promo copy over and over for months just because I enjoyed it, so I had to get copies in for all of you too. Over the course of nearly an hour, the work insitigates a handful of obvious shifts that propel it miles away. These shifts are spaced far apart, and in between, one feel is given many patterns and color. As to the sound itself, organic and acoustic sources are used rather than oscillators and harddrives, so there is a smooth, earthy feel to this work, though that does not make it clean or comfortable. Like some inevitable tsunami of power, the sound washes over us, creeps in at the edges and bends us with its will. Then glassy, beautiful reaches are expanded before us, a delicated swirl of moth-wings, a cloud of sussurus, like wind between hair and fingers, a sadness throughout is also the spice that gives this grand mountain of sound its human feel.
