the idea for this album came to me in a dream...
as dreams do...it starts nothing like how it ends.
Review by Isaac Eugene Edison:
"The notes for this album say that the idea for this album came in a dream - and it lives up to those origins.
Spaceman Fantastique is known for artfully portraying musical stories throughout his catalog, and 'A Thousand Days and a Day' does not disappoint. The entire album is something like a surrealist oil painting of a four panel comic strip - each track is distinct and complete in-and-of itself, yet they each flow into each other, building on the images and atmospheres of each preceding song.
'Into the City', 'Underground', 'Rooftop View'...the track titles reflect the imagery of each song, but goes beyond being just ambient music and conveys a flowing sense of activity and feeling. It almost feels like this album could be the score to the yet-unreleased James Cameron 'Battle Angel Alita' movie.
The production quality and arrangements are professional and accessible. The high frequency tones sparkle like lights on a computer motherboard or the windows of a futuristic city. The low frequency tones buzz and vibrate without distorting or shrieking. You truly get the sense that this is a thoughtfully crafted and personal album, as it evokes emotion and conjures cyberpunk images of a dream from some far off post-apocalyptic future.
You wanna know what it sounds like when androids dream of electric
sheep and imagine what it's like to imagine ?
An impressive and enjoyable effort from a true creative luminary and real presence on the chipmusic scene."

I did all the things.
This album was written in the span of three days...none of which were consecutive.
