Yes, this is one long 65 minute track. I debated whether I should cut it up into smaller, more accessible tracks (like I often do), but after listening to it multiple times in its entirety, I decided to keep it intact. There is a certain flow and pacing that really needs to be experienced as one continuum. This is not casual listening. It requires your time and involvement to be assimilated properly. The reward is in the full experience. I invite you in…


Time is something that we are aware of, but it is changeable, fluid. How often have we been lost in doing something we love, only to emerge from it saying, “That seemed like only 10 minutes.” Conversely, how many times have we been stuck in an unpleasant situation thinking that seems to “last forever”?

Time can be manipulated, bent, stretched, compressed. The music contained in this recording actively works to alter your perception of time. The sounds are designed to elongate your feeling of time until you reach a state of suspension, where there is no time, just being.

This was one of those special occasions where I felt the very nature of time moving through me. Come along to the end of your journey. Welcome to the Deva•Station. ~ MB
