This is Part 1 of Trilogy A. The album features large arrangements performed by 14 musicians. The sound is often symphonic or psychedelic, moody or chaotic, textural or dense, or everything at once. From beginning to end, this album takes the listener on a strange, transcendental trip.
There is also a limited edition The Ecstasy of Agony book which contains characters and elements related to the upcoming novel and feature film When the Alphabet Hides in Your Mouth.
