Text by Past Inside The Preset:

"Alex has released a collection of immersive works with Past Inside the Present and we are honored to release his first official solo album.

Alex has worked under the well-known aliases Olan Mill and llm, which PITP released previously unreleased tracks for our Healing Sounds I Compilation (bit.ly/2VJpHfm). His track,'Gaia' still is our highest streamed track from our catalog.

Less than a year later, PITP released a long player by Alex and Simon's drone project known as Pausal. ..

A year later from Melatonia, we are pleased to offer Alex's newest endeavor titled,'Vanaprastha'. According to Alex,'Vanaprastha was inspired by so many different events, changes and progressions it's hard to pin down anything specific, though relocating from the UK to Germany was impactful, along with starting a family'.

He further states,'learning more about plant medicine, Veganism, meditation and yoga on the Island of Koh Phangan in Thailand was really progressive for my creative process.'

The title Vanaprastha literally means "retiring to the forest "and is the third stage in the Varnashrama system of Hinduism. It represents the third of the four ashramas of human life, the other three being Brahmacharya, Grihastha and Sannyasa.

Alex states,'This is my first solo album, the music serves as a release from an old way of life where for many years I was lost and found in the woods of rural Hampshire, England.'

Written, recorded and mixed throughout the summer of 2020, you will hear Guitars, flutes, voice, organ and Marimbas that were set against field recordings from the river Ilm, Weimar.

Alex's music is a collage of therapeutic dream-states aimed to promote mindful interactions with nature and the cosmos.
