Accessible and absorbing, just over an hour of new music showcases the duo's ever developing fascination with soundscapes, minimalism, atmospherics, unusual instrumentation and exotic and trance-like rhythmic patterns around the core elements of Colin Edwin's forceful bass playing and Geoff Leigh's fearless and spontaneous flute and saxophone solos. 
 
Intense and fiery compositions are interspersed by more mellifluous and meditative tracks, creating an all-encompassing sonic journey through Ex-Wise Heads musical landscape.
 
Rick Edwards guests on percussion and Rajan Spolia adds his inimitable raga like acoustic guitar work to the nine minute closing track Breathing to Forget.
