Sketches to Remember Sanity is a record of ambient soundscapes centred around the theme of this culture’s addiction to the virtual world while the real world burns, too busy being glued to screens like zombies. It’s insane.
This record is a call to build a culture of resistance, for strength and resilience in fighting back, before it’s too late.
