about

An instrumental ambient project drawing on past thoughts, experiences, emotions and inspired by Jansen & Barbieri "Worlds in a Small Room", Ryuichi Sakamoto "Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence Soundtrack", John Foxx & Harold Budd "Translucence + Drift Music", OMD "Souvenir", Brian Eno "Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks", Thomas Dolby "Gothic Soundtrack", Akira Yamaoka "Silent Hill 2 soundtrack", and Biosphere "Substrata".

"Saudade is a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound
melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one
loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might never return."
