Recorded between December 2009 - January 2010 Texlahoma's 'Driebergen-Zeist' offers the listener a perfect distillation on a corner of a season - a valediction on mindfulness:
"Snow turned to ice, followed by Fresh snow. Ponds turned to ice,
children skating. Old years eve, fireworks, and a new dawn, a new
year, a new decade. A Birthday celebration, family, friend and
good times. A warning, a test warning, only to be used if something
really terrible happens…..but for now calm almost complete
silence, just the faint sound of accordion, children’s toys and wind
chimes. The birds and red squirrels searching for food in the
forest and gardens, a beautiful clear sky and the sound of
laughter. Then the train to the airport, and onwards to home."
Driebergen-Zeist is now available for pre-order and will start shipping on 12 February 2010. The CDR release costs 5GBP.
