Liner notes

This year, my FAWM project is making music for my kids to listen to as they fall asleep. (I’m working under the assumption that anything I finish will wind up under my “William Afham” pseudonym.) This first track is a little outside of my usual genre boundaries: a solemn, dubby passacaglia that wouldn’t be totally out of place in a spaghetti Western. It’s not about the West, though; think (much) further East. Parked-wah guitars (both picked and bowed), drawbar organ, and recycled drums feature prominently in this one, as do some excellent Valhalla DSP reverbs.
