PLEASE NOTE - THIS 2496 VERSION IS NOW REDUNDANT. THE UNCUT FULL LENGTH TRACKS HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE CD VERSION HERE ON BANDCAMP. YOU WILL FIND THESE FILES AT THE END OF THAT VERSION. THANK YOU!
Regarding the 2496 Download:
These two large tracks represent discs 1 & 2 from the 2-CD set, at highest resolution, in the original continuous format. You can use the CUE files provided in the bonus items to access the individual song titles in a player like VLC. There are separate CUE files for each disc, and also a single CUE file that will play through the whole 2CD flow. Bandcamp does not make it easy to link two download options to the same physical CD "merch" item, so this download does not offer a CD purchase to accompany it. If you wish to buy the physical CD along with this full resolution download, you can purchase the CD resolution version of this title along with the physical CD, then message Robert directly to receive a download code for the 2496 resolution version. He will be happy to provide the code upon receipt of the order.
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.
