Tracklist:

1. Aurōra Coelestis - part I+II (31:54)
2. Hic et Nunc (7:26)

Private press LP. Includes DL coupon.

"[...] it is an absolute monster. Sounding quite unlike anything he has done before, it consists of two extended tracks. The first is a beautiful slice of ghostly holy music made using nothing but glockenspiel fed through his patented ‘alientronics’. [..] Alternately meditative and mind-breakingly harsh, this is a major statement of modern minimalism.
The second piece, “Hic et Nunc”, applies the same cracked alientronics to vocals, with tunnels of disembodied angel vox flexing deep bass tones and hovering register leaps to the point of pure body ecstasy. [..]
A major release, this one comes very highly recommended!
- DAVID KEENAN / Volcanic Tongue

[...] Comprising two elongated suites this set promises an experience like no other, applying his self-patented alientronics software and glockenspiels, Mr Opalio etches to wax what the press blurb describes as ’ghostly holy music’. Essential.”
- MARKLOSINGTODAY / The Sunday Experience
