about

"There are people for whom a constant inner repose and a harmonious ordering of all their capabilities is so characteristic that any goal-directed activity goes against their grain. They are like a piece of music consisting entirely of sustained harmonious chords, with no evidence of even the beginning of a structured, moving melody. At any moment from the outside, their boat at once gains a new equilibrium on the sea of harmonic euphony.

Modern people are usually extremely impatient on meeting such natures, who do not become anything - though it may not be said that they are not anything. In certain moods, however, their presence evokes that rare question: why have melody at all? Why are we not satisfied when life mirrors itself peacefully in a deep lake?"

Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche

'When Life Mirrors Itself' is an album I finished some months ago, but I was never quite sure what to do with it. As I don't want it to go to waste I've decided to release it as a free download.

Ultra subtle, bleak low-end drone experiments recorded using processed piano and tapes. A dark album made for midnight contemplation. Whatever that is.

As always: if you like it, great! Please spread the word. If not, be glad you didn't waste any money on it.
