Geoffrey Elgey Each track reminds me of a cross between Eno's "An Ascent" and Aphex Twin's "Stone In Focus", which is very high praise indeed. Glorious floaty ambient.

Rindenberg There is a reason why Dennis Huddleston is among the spearheads of the contemporary ambient scene. Those cosmic pads, those bittersweet melodies, those slow and gentle movements...they give 36 this enraptured aura which leaves you breathless and in awe every time. The 2x4 meditations on Ego Death are no different and offer an intimate journey towards calmness and reflection, wrapped in somber melancholy and pure bliss. What a beautiful gift! Favorite track: Time Without Motion.

about

"Exactly 10 years ago this month, I finished my debut album Hypersona. In the decade since its release, I feel I've explored many avenues to my sound, but I will always have a fondness for those tracks where everything is stripped bare, letting just the pads and the chords tell the story. I think it's a timeless sound and allows the listener to completely detach themselves from their environment. I've long been fascinated with the idea of Ego Death, but not from a spiritual or psychedelic perspective. I think music alone has the power to allow people to lose all sense of self in the sound.

For this release, I selected 4 tracks from my recent (and currently ongoing) 2018 Audio Diary compilation, which were particularly close to my heart. All tracks use the same core instruments, but the arrangements take very different paths. I revisited the studio files to make final edits/adjustments, which were then elegantly mastered by Stephan Mathieu, at his new studio in Germany. These aren't tracks to tear up your speakers. It's my music at its most intimate, exactly how I think it should be.

As this is an anniversary release, and to thank you all for your kind support over the last 10 years, I have decided to make this release pay what you want. Feel free to send me a couple of pounds and you will have my eternal thanks. If you're struggling at the moment, then just download it for free. There will be absolutely no judgement either way. Anything you do contribute will go back into future music. Thank you." - 36

The digital version includes 4 bonus tracks, which are alternate versions of the main tracks, recorded in a single studio session on 16th November 2018. They are exclusive to this Bandcamp release. For those who prefer physical, an extremely limited vinyl press will be available in April 2019.
