This release comprises one continuous realisation of Golden Sunset, Blue Rain, ‘Upper World, Parts 1-8’ (tracks 1-8). This realisation places the focus on the serenity of the continuous tones produced from a multitracked Tibetan singing bowl combined with Scottish tin whistles.

The image below shows a macro structural analysis of ‘Upper World, Parts 1-8’ on a linear scaled sonogram. The rainbow sonogram in the image below shows the frequency response with the highest frequencies in purple and the lowest frequencies in red. It should be noted though, that the names of the instruments do not appear in this image in relation to their frequency responses, rather they simply show their prominence within the overall macro structure of this realisation of the work. The waveform below the sonogram marks the four main textural and dynamic build-ups marked numerically in magenta circles, along with their respective crescendi/diminuendi.
