about

"a decade dreaming" collects a dozen introspective and elegiac ambient soundscapes from 10 years of dreamSTATE live performances at THE AMBiENT PiNG in Toronto, Canada.

The album includes tracks recorded with many of the brilliant ambient artists that they have been privileged to play with over the years: Eric Hopper (Sylken) on synthesisers, Alan Bloor (Pholde/Knurl) on bowed metal, Jim Field (Northumbria/spacenoiz/Rhea's Obsession) on guitar, James Johnson on electronic keyboards, Wally Jericho on trumpet, cheryl o (quasiMODAL) on cello and Steven Sauvé (karmafarm) on cello treatments.

"a decade dreaming is an intense, vivid trip through the duo’s history, filled with energy, art and possibility... it’s a CD you must have in your collection." ~ John Shanahan - Hypnagogue

"Listening and experiencing dreamSTATE’s music is a trip into the many dimensions and renditions of space, ranging from the cosmic to the slightly abstract. It sees dreamy and more progressive textural pads shapeshift and evolve along the way, occasionally with foreboding undercurrents and strange field recordings. This is adventurous, freeform ambient music meant for close and deeper listening but most of all an open and receptive mind."
~ Bert Strolenberg - Sonic Immersion
