"Forgeability", "Steam" and "Through a Tunnel" were inspired by the industrial surroundings I observe for the most part of my life.
"Urban Doves" is the result of multiple processing of sounds which was made during accidental video recordings of a bird feeding process.
"Volga in Winter" and "Burnt Forest" are some sorrowful impressions of local entourage. We change the environment, and occasionally these changes aren't as good as expected.
A few ambient experiments that 4T Thieves created over the past few months during a time of upheaval. New Times is the latest and was created using a new setup in a new country. A slightly more beat driven track, it's more light hearted than the rest. Waves of Change and Tranquil are pure ambient with an epic touch, and Drifting in the Clouds is the most emotional of the four.
All tracks produced by 4T Thieves and mastered by Mnemonic Studios.
The term "Felix Culpa" is Latin for "Happy Fall", and it refers to the Renaissance idea that Adam and Eve's Fall from the Garden of Eden was necessary and beautiful, because it gave us knowledge.
However, the term also has personal meaning in my mind. Love is in itself a "Felix Culpa", because it speaks to the vulnerabilities and turbulence associated with completely devoting oneself to another person, hence the "Fall". Nevertheless, it also ignites within us an extraordinary feeling of elation and weightlessness.
