about

An experiment in 'musicollage' built around the themes of evolutionary biology, astronomy, love and the light of reason over superstition. It is a musical diary kept over the course of a year and edited, mixed and sequenced for another using contributions from the musicians via the internet.
The 12-track presentation available here is just one way of arranging the 38 separate segments recorded for the project.
