This was a commissioning project for the Society of Sun Staring (SOSS) as a soundtrack to accompany extended sessions.
Originally, we weren't going to release this publicly but Remy Jujube, a young professional, said it was viable. Dairy Tade concurred that because SOSS maintains their web hosting behind a firewall blackout, it would be better for us to release anyway and we could always claim Ensi Näkemältä if there were any legal issues.
In post-production, we eventually found out that Remy Jujube was previously a board member in SOSS, so we were more confident about the release, though we adjusted the mix to compensate.
