Ancient Forever (2020 Redux)

Originally released November 10, 2012 as II016. This version has been re-mixed and re-mastered from the original sessions to give a clearer sonic picture of what the album was aiming to do when it was released seven and a half years ago.

"This album was recorded in September and October 2011 while I was living in Melbourne, Australia. That time was very special and brought me close to nature on an unfamiliar continent many times. Perhaps most notable was a trip to The Crags in New South Wales - a group of three structures perched on a hill with steep, rocky cliffs all around. The other two houses were empty and the non-human presence greatly outweighed the human presence. During the day we swam in the river, dunked our heads in the waterfall, walked the fields, saw trees growing through the stone, and came close to some of the large and poisonous creatures Australia is famous for. The night was incredibly dark and there were bright flashing lights from unknowable sources. I left with the sense that I will never really know or comprehend the depths of a space like that. The potency of that mystery was very tangible and inspiring. And I feel like this music offers a glimpse into that inspiration." -Sean
