about

Being inspired by the Buddha Machine (fm3buddhamachine.com) I recorded this set of songs, meant to be played in a loop by themselves, just like the Buddha Machine.

Gemütlichkeit "means a situation that induces a cheerful mood, peace of mind, with connotation of belonging and social acceptance, coziness and unhurry." [wikipedia]

The concept of Gemütlichkeit seemed to meld with the purpose of the Buddha Machine, well being, feeling good, relaxation.

I chose to make 10 tracks instead of 9 like the original BM because 10 is divisible by 5 and 5 is a perfect number in Dischordianism, which I may or may not be a Pope of.

I have German genes but have never looked too much into it until now and decided to use the German names for numbers 1-10 and of course the albums name is German. Way to look into my heritage huh?

While this is meant to be relaxing I can't say for sure if it will work out that way, so why don't you give it a listen and let me know what you think.

If you are having trouble understanding, why not consult your pineal gland?
