    Download includes multi-page digital booklet with paintings by Robert Rich. If you prefer the highest resolution audio (2496) in a continuous flow, but you also want the physical CD, then you can order the 2CD set through this page and request an additional 2496 download code. Robert will be happy to provide one free of charge. This might seem complicated, but it's the best way to maintain the continuous flow of the music in all versions.

about

Can we find a tactile ground,
an animal surface upon which to calibrate our humanity?

Skin telegraphs sensation from air,
filtered from distant worlds.
Language constricts our sense of self
to an illusion of separation.
The verb of living, flux and transmutation,
expands outward from the middle,
concentric ripples on a pond.
We drop through the surface,
pebbles tossed from the shore.
