The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

"This release is all about engaging with your actions in the present moment. These two recordings are improvisations with synthesizers and field recordings. They were made at my home in Glasgow, at the time. I was unable to see or play the music with others, and it felt strange to perform these works without others to inspire me to guide the sounds. It was hard to decide what to choose, what to keep, and what to leave out, so I decided to record all the songs, the good and the bad. The two pieces were made over the course of two or three days and started with similar vocal compositions, the results are very different, and in that moment they took me to different places. When I listen back to the recording of , I feel a range of emotions, from excitement to embarrassment.As time passed, I came to the conclusion that the recording was an attempt to express it.The recording is a kind of loss that makes me grow. I hope you find these works fascinating and somehow ignite your thoughts, feelings and emotions."
