I have been listening to Divinations quietly throughout several full work days, and left it looping in the Hypnagogue office. While I do recommend breaking out the headphones to get all the detail work, this album truly excels as an atmosphere enhancer. Whether you use it during your mediation or yoga or just letting it tint the air as you go about your daily routine, this is a release you’ll come back to. Absolutely worth listening to. - Hypnagogue (John Shanahan) - hypnagogue.net

I have listened to it several times - both awake and while sleeping. Not sure which consciousness mode I enjoy it in the most! Seriously Greg, you've hit a home run with this one! - Windspace (Bruce Hickey) - soundcloud.com/windspace/

This serene, atmospheric, non-rhythmic release is especially suitable for deep relaxation; meditation, yoga, tai chi & similar activities; and wellness spaces of all kinds. As ever, the music is suitable for background or deep listening, as one likes.

Tracks 1-4 were previously released on compilations from the excellent Free Floating netlabel (freefloatingmusic.bandcamp.com).

The final piece, Ensō, is a live laptop/softsynth improvisation, from an art show in May 2012. Avian and human voices were added during postproduction in May 2014.

The Japanese word "Ensō" means "a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create". (More details in the Wikipedia article.) This continues the "reflections on the creative process" theme explored in Exquisite Divination of Patterns and Radiant Perception, and suitably closes the several circular paths which led to this album's release.
