Liner notes

Here are Ingar Zach's own notes on the solo release:

«This CD is recorded live in an abandoned chocolate factory in Oslo with an amazing acoustic. I would recommend the listener to find one level on their hi-fi (quite loud!!!), and listen through the whole piece without changing the volume level.»
