the new solo album from A. Simian. This time the music is more ambient with spacy moods and meditative sequencing.

a section of the liner notes (included as a bonus item with the download album version) tells about the idea behind the album:

"This album is a special one for me as it was in the summer of 1985 when I got my first synth (a Micromoog). I really took the time to learn to use it and managed to make a 45 min. C-cassette of my own music with it.

Now, 30 years later I decided to try a similar approach to creating and recording music; fast and simple and with minimal gear. Therefore, many of these tracks are produced with just one synth, three at best. ... the experience was very purifying and helped me to find my way back to the original inspiration of 30 years back…"

For those with a deeper interest in synthesizers, the liner notes (in the bonus material) will tell you what synths were used on particular tracks.
