Our first non-mantra album - over 2 hours of ambient and not-so-ambient soundscapes
Well, it's taken longer to get to the shops than we expected but hopefully you'll think it was worth the wait!
My fourth album with Kwali is now out both as a double CD and digitally to stream. Unlike our first three this is not a collection of mantras but four 31-minute musical journeys or soundscapes.
When we started out the intention was to stay firmly within the ambient bracket and much of this album falls reasonably within that definition but, as with so many things, the album decided to take us on it's own adventure rather than our plan, from the almost-dancy second half of Air to Earth which, well, let's just say it did its own thing and includes probably the most epic ending I've ever given a track, and if you know enough of my music you'll know I do like my epic endings!

I've set up a new Bandcamp page for Kwali and me here - bit.ly/elementaltemple1bc - so if you want to get a discount (35%) for buying our full digital catalogue you don't have to be everything on my page but you can get it from mine and Ensancha El Alma's page too
