These songs are not unreleased works, but songs that I've been waiting for the opportunity to release, but the timing was never right.

For "The Ancient Forest" I overdubbed an electric guitar drone onto the original data.

I'm not sure exactly when the original material was recorded, but I think it was around 2015.

"Beacon On The Cape" is older, first recorded around 2012 I think. At that time I was working in a rented studio in Nature Bliss, and I used an old tape delay that was in the studio. The delay was broken. The broken delay created a nice atmosphere. After that, I mixed it many times and it became what it is today.
