OK folks, we've got exactly one week left, and things are still going well. We're so pleased that we've decided to extend our thank-you with a new extra reward, available exclusively to all supporters of our campaign who contribute 5€ or more - that's right, you don't even need to order the record! Just for showing your support, at the end of the campaign, along with your chosen reward as detailed on our campaign page (nothing has changed there) you will receive a download code for a Kickstarter-exclusive extra 10-minute track, fifth song for forgetting

The source material for fifth song for forgetting was recorded at the same time and place as the rain gutters and the telescope antenna on the LP, in Tõravere, Estonia in August, 2007. It was all recorded in and on a ruined Soviet-era underground fire-safety water tank, with Estonian sound recordist and artist Antti Mäss. You will hear the bowing of the tank's above-ground entrance-hatch handle, scrapings, percussion and water from inside the tank, the resonance of the tank's ventilation pipe, and vocal experiments from various points on and in the tank. these elements were recomposed afterwards, at the same time as the first song for forgetting was being assembled.

This piece won't be available anywhere else, and is only available to Kickstarter supporters, as our way of thanking you for getting in on this project early. If you've already backed us with 5€ or more you're already down to receive a download code. If you've backed us for less, you still have time to upgrade your contribution. And if you haven't backed us yet, here's a new incentive!

As always, thanks for your support!
