Exosphere 04:27
Sei nicht traurig, bald ist es Nacht, Da sehn wir über dem bleichen Land Den kühlen Mond, wie er heimlich lacht Und ruhen Hand in Hand. Sei nicht traurig, bald kommt die Zeit, Da haben wir Ruh. [Unsre]2 Kreuzlein stehen Am hellen Straßenrande zu zweit, Und es regnet und schneit, Und die Winde kommen und gehen. ENGLISH: Do not be sorrowful, soon it shall be night, Then, over the pale land, we shall see The cool moon secretly laughing And we shall rest hand in hand. Do not be sorrowful, soon the time shall come, Then we shall have rest. Our little crosses shall stand Together at the bright roadside. And it shall rain and snow And the winds shall come and go.
Missing Her 03:23


This album is a remixed, remastered and partially rerecorded collection from three early Gateless Gate EPs:

- Germania, which is a tribute to 1970s Krautrock and German electronic music that pays specific homage to Popul Vuh, Kraftwerk, Ashra, Edgar Froese, and Klaus Schulze. The lyrics to "Auf Wanderung" are a poem by Hermann Hesse. (tracks 1-5)

- Myrrh, the final two tracks of which are combined here as the "Myrrh Suite," a Pink Floyd-influenced ambient/psych epic. (track 6)

-All Is One, which I am deleting because I have taken the title song over to my Twilight Fields project; these three concluding instrumental tracks are at the post-rock end of the ambient music spectrum. (tracks 7-9)

This album features some of my most affecting music, presented with a new sonic shine that makes for a more satisfying and absorbing listening experience.
