The 'Alluvial' EP is inspired by geology, human prehistory and the idea of 'deep time'- how incredibly long it has taken the planet to evolve.
I have therefore tried to express a sense of scale, which is in contrast to the more personal landscapes that inspire much of Northcape's material.
The result is this EP which contains four slow-building but still melodic tracks with a more ambient feel.
Some of the tracks are inspired by the idea of human habitation in the distant past, and others by geological space - the release image is pretty much a landscape I was imagining when I was writing the tracks.
Although they are different from my normal approach to melodic electronica (which continues to develop), I think these tracks still keep a recognizable Northcape sound.

Moonlight Nagara was a Project i started as [F]
and then we were running it with [A]
as an internet collab from september 2007 to december 2007.
Our collab has ended four years ago.
Now I want to run it again.
So, these are the tracks we've made.
Then i'll make some new asap.

I have to say the end of this Project gave birth to Data Unit.

As a matter of fact, my love for Japan is not brand new.
