In the rye —

Single. Ambient crystallised sounds, 5"01. 2014

This was actually the first piece of music I ever made, which consisted of me pushing keys on my typing keyboard, recorded live in one take. It was one of the finer moments in my life, the feeling that in pushing the keys I was just a translator for a higher consciousness that I happened to be tuned into at that time... That was about 2002, and in 2014 opened it all up again and played around with it to give a more layered, lofi but fuller feel, being slightly more knowledgeable about sound nowadays. I still enjoy listening to it, hope someone else somewhere does :)

The whole name "Kaonashi in the rye" is a play on "Catcher in the rye", so this song is best experienced whilst reading J D Salinger's classic novel.
