    Important: because Bandcamp's mp3 encoder creates audible clicks between continuous tracks (tracks with no pause in-between) we recommend downloading Apple lossless (ALAC) and use iTunes if you want to convert to mp3. This way you get smooth transitions without clicks.

The fourth collaboration between Apollonius (f.k.a. Human Metronome) and 33 Tetragammon takes the listener on a trip along the innermost landscapes of varied terrain. It can be a tumultuous ride; serene vistas are followed by steep mountain trails which are guarded by ghosts from nearby caverns to test the traveler's endurance. Questions are asked by the howling wind: do you really want to be here? Or are you secretly, subconsciously asking to be blown away into the abyss next to you? You might encounter a screeching voice of a nightbird repeatedly asking if you are really enjoying the deepest and darkest of nights. How much further are you willing to go when these voices invoked by each landscape are continuously whispering the most existential of questions: What is the essence, the core of your life right now?

While in the process of making this album both artists experienced a rollercoaster of different moods and psychological, 'soul level' states. About a dozen of these states and associated images can be described as a title for each track. They are:

-Light Storm
-Black Hole
-Null Zone
-The Abyss
-Directional Shift
-Lost Parts/Hidden Aspects
-The Tomb
-Shifting Angles
-The Womb
-Free Will?
-Inner Hades

It is up to the listener to pick one of the above and to make an intuitive connection with one or several of the given tracks. This way everyone is free to choose their own title. Or maybe a title is made up by the listener himself? For this purpose all track names are called 'choose title 1', choose title 2 etc.

It is best to experience the album (rather than 'just listening to it') at a low volume, at night, in nature.
