I recorded this music entirely with the new Korg Wavestate which I had just acquired. The album is a sonic adventure full of surprises. I loved recording this album. And it was a blast recording in Carlos' beautiful studio.

I was editing the final mixes when George Floyd was murdered. I decided to weave 526 seconds of silence into the editing of the album. Each pause is in prime numbers starting from 2 seconds leading up to 43 and back down to 2. This has been a powerful meditation for me and I feel that this is a powerful work of art. That said, this country desperately needs fundamental change to heal from hundreds of years of systemic racism and genocide, far beyond symbolic and artistic expression.

The cover art is a photograph by ACVilla somewhere between Española and Albuquerque.

Love and solidarity, Tholl
