After some interesting conversations about what we could do for
Australian podcast series, Symbiosis, Kuma went back into the studio

Originally released on Symbiosis
Radio on January 16th, 2010, in the grand tradition of what Gunshae

It’s completely improvised ambient, classical and experimental
stuff and things. It’s the sort of thing where sets go by in the
