This track is a special dedication to Pete Namlook who passed into the drone space on November 8, 2012. Some of my favorite works by Pete were the soundscapes he created on his own and with artists like Tetsuo Inoue. Mixing long form drone tracks and voices from news and archived sources was something he continued with long after it was a cliche in electronic music. Following a similar formula, I present, Stratosphere, in memoriam to the wonderful artist Pete Namlook.

If you are a usual player of The Long Dark or The Hunter Call of the Wild in the Medved Taiga reserve, you will probably understand why I like these five winter themed albums so much.
If you also have a special place in your heart for The Wendigo by Algernon Blackwood... same thing.
Very ominous themes which translate very well the dangerous isolation and cold of winter. Forto Reibus.
This is the journey to the center of gray. It is what it is and always will have been. Words waste time when this creation should be the main thing in our minds. The ability of Steve's music to transport us to realms of truth and beauty is really the crux of what this is all about. The zone is reached in this incredible sound world. Do not let this go by Get it !. Biff Johnson and Shelley Andrews
