Shink I don't hear albums as mystical and soulful as this too often. It's got a haunted, suffering and emotional setting, with a story and a good dramaturgy. I love the amateur improvisation here and there, because it turns out so well. This album is of the dark ambient type. Not recommended if you're in a bad mood! Favorite track: SIGNAL.

    This album tells the story of a brilliant scientist who, driven mad by grief, constructed a machine to bring her daughter back from the land of the dead. This machine, the Orpheic Drive, unmakes the fabric of the universe upon activation, twisting the surrounding world into an unrecognizable nightmare world populated by vaguely-human beasts - leaving the scientist's poor young maid in the center of it all.

    As the maid, you must venture through the evil world of the scientist's creation, and find that her past trauma is not so separate from your own...

    This is a soundtrack for a conceptual survival horror game. Every sound in this album was fabricated from my own voice. The songs, ranging from "slightly creepy" to "downright terrifying," contain vaguely-human samples of unsimulated sobbing, laughter, and sex. Not something you should listen to with the lights turned out...

    Paid download includes two hidden tracks, the original instrumental precursors to two of the final tracks.

Track Name: TOUCH
simple is best
it's not just advice
simple is best
give it a try
what we do
in our alone time
is what defines us

simple is best
Occham's Razor
cut away the nonsense
and leave just the flavor
what's done is done
and stays that way forever

everything will end someday
what's gone is gone and stays that way
everything will end someday and I
I welcome it with open arms
broken body and bleeding palms
I relish the collapse that comes
to everything I touch
