Quiet Space — #147 — Melatonia

I’ve been championing the music of Pausal for many years. Individually, Alex Smalley has released numerous works under his Olan Mill alias and Simon Bainton has released on Hibernate Records. Their seventh album, Melatonia, was recorded during a period of significant change and upheaval for both members of the band.. As with much of their music, the material here was initially conceived through lengthy improvisation sessions and their intention was to create soundscapes conducive towards relaxation and to assist with rest and sleep. Enjoy this special mix, with a focus on this stunning new album.
