A massive conceptual undertaking, Verdant Overgrowth is one of several planned epilogue works for the Verdant Acre six-volume series. After recording sessions for the VA series had finished, I returned to the source tapes and isolated every rhythm track from the original recordings, and adjusted the tempos to match up. Additionally, I isolated the musical elements of the tapes, themselves raw and mutated patches of decayed vinyl detritus and orchestral minor keys, and carefully combined elements from all six volumes to construct an aching eighty-minute ambient atmosphere**. Returning to the rhythm tracks, I assembled a seamless stereo mix containing every rhythm from every track in the six volumes, constantly fading in and out of one another and panning in a circular fashion that is both hypnotic and ever-evolving. Thus, Verdant Overgrowth is an appropriate title for a musical piece that at once sums up around seven hours of recordings and also stands alone as a deep psychedelic ambient techno landscape.
**This atmosphere will be released in a beatless form at Wil Ru Recordings, bearing the title Verdant Dusk, in the near future.
