Aptly fragile music, but dark, and best played with the lights out! This is Jim being both dark and ethereal, with lots of twisted melodic tones, undulations, glissandi, mutated sonics, glass / crystalline tonalities, subtle but vivid. There is a melodic edge there to hang on to, but it's always kept elusive, out of reach - don't touch it, else it will shatter!
