This is sort of a sequel to "It's not a game", taking inspiration from recovery strategies and therapy/coaching after a particularly bad (for me) episode of depression.

The track titles are meant to be informed by the tracks themselves, NOT the other way round. They are written to be deliberately misleading if read on their own!

No sequencers were harmed in the making of this album. Some 'arpeggios' on the Montage were used for some background or percussion patterns (most obviously for 'On The Aire'), but the most of the notes and rhythms were played out by my own fair hands. I hope this gives it a more 'human' feel than earlier albums. Even the mechanistic drums on SHY were all individually hit to give a slightly wonky machine sound.

The download includes a PDF booklet with these notes in them and a couple more equally bad photographs.

Violins, viola d'amore, piano, synths, guitar, drums, plugging stuff in, plugging it back in again in the right place, trains, bad cover photography, mixing, mastering, and all that jazz.
