Live At The Miramar

by Vir Unis and John Koch-Northrup

supported by
Brian Bourassa
Brian Bourassa thumbnail
Brian Bourassa We are presented with a very complex arsenal of sounds and soundscapes that seem to transport us back to the beginning of primordial life on earth. A sloppy soup of moving earth, tribalistic beats of early man, and the winds, rain, and other primitive life all aid in landscape that unfolds before you.

A cerebral journey of the lost memory of our planet all takes place inside your head.

UPDATE: I've been asked if I'm splitting sales with Vir Unis and if he knows I released it. Of course! He and I have been friends since we were in high school - I'm splitting sales 50/50 and we both expect to be able to retire on the proceeds of this album at least by the year 2080. Unfortunately, I'll be around 110 at that point.
