The phrase ‘ecliptic plane‘ refers to the Sun’s apparent path or orbit around the Earth, as seen from a terrestrial perspective. As such, the music contained on the album Ecliptic Plane explores orbits and perspective, with multi-layered guitar loops slowly evolving and gradually changing through the course of their repetition. All sounds are produced by electric guitar, all recorded live to 2-track.
