"Dreams of Flight" leading with a loopy synth tape and organ intro and sliding more into a layered organ zone of dreamy melodies. A nice tape cut jumps us over to "Blue Aura", a slower zoner washed in reverb and wandering around directionless melodies with a few tape dropouts thrown in before settling into an airplane motor low hum drone with some phasing tone falling on top. Burke has no fear of transitions and takes this piece to a slowly evolving windy organ drone deep in the cavern.

Josh is getting a lot done on a C23.

B Side gives us “Screen in the Sky” a slow cloudy dreamer of soft fades and echo. Melody and progression feels more exposed and evolving compared to A side but at a suitable relaxed pace. Massage music. Surprisingly no abrupt transitions for the nearly 9 minute piece although a signature quick tape cut takes us to to finish the tape with “Petals”, another underwater reverb drowning of presumably organ tones.
