Richard Gürtler ...propelled by rather monochromatic layer, gliding through sublimely spacious zones, guarded by Chari Chuang's celestial voice-like washes with glancing ear-tickling reverberations, thrillingly coalesced with rattling natural symphonies and solitary deep bass undulations, and all marvelously bridged with gorgeously poetic piano glimmers. Another aural bliss and an ultimate Hall of Fame composition...

"Vestiges" album is another virtuosically polished monument by this Californian mastermind!!!

The final track in the download is a repeat of the entire album, flowing together continuously as I intend it. This version is uploaded in full 2496 resolution (FLAC format) so be sure to take advantage of that resolution in your download selection if you can. You will find a CUE list in the Bonus Items, which you can use to import the track names into a player like VLC. You might need to edit the filename in the CUE file with a text editor, to match the name of the file after downloading.

If you are interested in a 5.1 channel high resolution surround version, you can purchase surround downloads from Surround Music One:


Adrift on slack tide, trending out into the vestiges of fading light.
The night that dawns knows nothing of this passing thought.
Quietly slipping past the buoys, ever farther from shore's embrace.
