this collection of tracks are, if you like, an homage to the time i spent in Cumbria, and it's countryside. each one inspired in some way by where i lived, and the places i visited, and came to love, and where i found some peace within them. all were recorded between 2010 and 2012. the artwork, and the extra photograph's were all taken on my last visit to Loweswater, towards the end of 2012. it was a place i spent countless hours at, or around and above, over the years, so it seemed kind of fitting to use them for this set of works - and even if they do span over 2 years, they are all intrinsically linked by one single factor - Cumbria.

The music speaks for itself, you must fully experience "Meltstream", because otherwise you will miss one of the most glorious dronescaping adventures released in last few years. Steve Brand did it again, but that's nothing surprising anymore and for Roy Mattson this turned as a really great introductory performance. "The Great Hoop" was one of the ultimate sonic jewels of 2013 and now, "Meltstream" is heading for the same title in 2014!!! Hats off to Steve & Roy!!! Richard Gürtler
I just listened through the first time and truly love the whole work! The textures of the music are dynamic enough to hold me and at the same time the pieces are perfect for meditation, contemplation, inner exploration. Mikeljon Nikolich
