AbstractRadio session - ambient abstractions III - may 2022

Your questions answered ...

What is this? An accompanying piece to our ambient abstractions sessions from 2016 - consider it a six-decade-encompassing cinematic, meandering sweep through all things horizontal.

What should I prepare myself for? Well, for starters, there's the break into the strings in Romer's That Was a Good Feeling, which is simply breathtaking. Then there's Hannah Peel's and Bill Callahan's astounding contributions, which also send shivvers.
And after that, pretty much all of the rest of it.

Is this a requiem for those no longer with us? To some degree, occasionally yes, but in a life-affirming way.

Is it deeply moving in parts? You betcha!

Should I be using heavy machinery while I listen? No, this would be highly inadvisable.

It seems to go on forever? Yep, that's the general idea.

It just sends me to sleep - WTF? The last 15 mins should counter that.

Have you completely taken leave of your senses? The jury remains out on that.

How long did this take to make? You really don't want to know ... let's say we really wanted to go the extra mile on this one.

Why not make it more manageable and cut it into two halves? Well, we thought long and hard about this, and decided that it makes a lot more sense when listened to as a whole.

Sorry, but where's the banging house music? Coming back soon, we promise.


Taking you to obscure places.
Not necessarily honouring the return fare.

Love and babirusas,


[any feedback, as ever, much appreciated]
