Benjamin Burnes I love these songs; they convey a slightly skewed perspective of ambient and atmospheric music that seems really hard to capture. The tracks are, on the whole, airy and wide open with spoken word audio clips interlaced delicately. There are some tracks, like The Last Question, that get gritty and intense, offering a nice change of pace in this dynamic album. Favorite track: Widmanstättens' Meteor.

Thank you to Samantha McGrath, who lovingly supported me while I obsessed over every second of this record.

Thank you to Adam Chisvin, who inspired the concept of this
record and responded to my strange request to record the
ambience of a casino.
