This is a new 2020 stereo mixdown of OCEAN MIND which was originally set up as a multi-channel, electro/acoustic sound installation at Space 538 in Portland Maine during March 2010. The installation featured 5 gongs (ranging in size from 12"-28") which were activated & sounded by small motors. The electronic component of the installation consisted of 4 loudspeakers & multiple handheld cassette players playing long loops of spectrally processed gong tones.
To me, this album sounds like a dying planet that was once full of life, but is now mostly desert with a few pockets of water. This music creates such specific pictures like that, and that's why I enjoy it so much. ggrimes65
