The original Balsamic Remora was recorded straight to DAT in 1997, and the recording ended prematurely when Opcode Vision crashed, taking the MIDI project with it. The 1997 version was recovered from cassette.
The 2017 version duplicates the main melodic and rhythmic elements, but never the same river twice.
Thanks to: the Remixers (of course), Melissa, Rob Williams, Tom Butcher, Mike Perkowitz, Shawn Rudiman, Charles Terhune, Aran Parillo, Andrew Belt (for VCV Rack), the denizens of Vrave, and the worldwide community of electronic music producers.

I believe this mesmerizing album is best enjoyed in complete darkness. When it’s totally dark and the music plays, a city made of light appears and it shapeshifts right before your eyes, and you with it. Fabio Viola
