this longer piece is meant to fit on one side of a cassette tape. both my best friend and i like to fall asleep to music. there will be one tape made for her, the other side is a mystery for now.
i love you, this is for you.

there are three longer field recordings (two storms, and the wind chimes outside of my aunt and uncle's home) and underneath four long guitar loops pushed to the edge of break-up that gently fade and drift amongst themselves.

this is not supposed to be particularly invigorating, just relaxing and sleepy

the length of the loops' repeats are arbitrary, mimicking the activity of rain and wind

i had to cut this into two pieces for bandcamp to accept it.

i hope this helps you sleep.
