Sometime a few years ago, Scott Turner (of Not Your Average Hippy) and Darrell Burgan (of Palancar) decided to take a weekend off, travel to a lovely retreat by the water, and spend a few days immersing themselves as deeply as possible in some ambient music composition.

While these two artists had worked on projects together before, these face to face sessions struck a chord deep within each of them. The music that came from these sessions seemed to them to be exactly what their ambient music was meant to be.

In the months and years that followed, Darrell and Scott enjoyed several other such ambient weekends, with each travelling to the other's home state and studio.Naturally, they made a point to record these sessions, and later with encouragement from family and friends, decided to release them.

This album is the first release from those weekends, originally released commercially on Blue Water Records, and now available on Community Audio for free enjoyment. Darrell and Scott both hope that you find this music as fulfilling to listen to as it was to make.


released July 22, 2006

All music composed, produced, and recorded by Scott Turner and Darrell Burgan.

Released originally on Blue Water Records in 2006. Re-released on Community Audio in July 2015.
