This album is based on and dedicated to the work of E.D Anderson and his hand-bound book "Industrial Microscopy." The book was found at his estate sale in Tulsa OK. The book contains over 200 photographs. E. D. had photographed everything from fibers & fabrics, textiles & weaves, rocks & plants, animal hair & animal flesh all under a microscope at 400X with an old 35mm camera. Each musical piece is a dedication to a particular image he shot.
Download the album and receive a free hidden track entitled, "Skyward Sea Stains." Also receive 13 hi res scanned photographs shot by Mr Anderson on his 35mm through his microscope in 1959. Each song is titled accordingly after a specific image.
