This is the first collection of works by ontol recorded completely "in the box" or on the computer.
Listening more than a year later, I do hear many things I would change, and a few mistakes I have hopefully learned from.
The title refers to the time just after I began recording with the wide selection of VSTs now available. I spent a lot of time chasing the textures and sounds I had heard on many of my favorite ambient albums over the years. It occurred to me I was picking flowers of sound from the fields of other artists before me.
Recorded November 2011-September 2012 using ProTools on a self-build PC.
