Artist notes:

This piece is about early morning light, shape-shifting clouds, two-dimensional birds and empty space. It's my interpretation of a certain kind of dawn, when the light is just bright enough to make the sleep slightly thinner and restless.

When making music, I often listen to sounds and adjust them bit by bit until I start to connect with them emotionally. At best a sound can be a canvas for the listener to project their feelings and ideas in multiple ways again and again. I usually work on pieces for a long time because I want to wander inside them and let them become part of my daily life for a while.

I recorded this at home in Vantaa, Finland and in Q-O2, Brussels and Elektronmusikstudion, Stockholm during 2014–2019.
