Originally released as a C50 cassette on Tranquility Tapes.

"It's an honor to present new work by one of the most talented and dedicated purveyors of synthesizer music working today: Portland's Daryl Groetsch. Inspired by the environmental majesty surrounding Groetsch's home in the Pacific Northwest, Forest, Mountain, Valley explores the allure and mystery of nature through three long form compositions. Each movement unfolds with utmost patience, utilizing space brilliantly as they are paradoxically minimal in structure and dynamics, yet bursting at the seams with raw beauty and emotion. Recorded in pristine fidelity and played with precision, synthesizer tones are stunningly present, allowing gorgeous melodies to envelop the ears entirely. In just under an hour, Groetsch takes the listener on an entire journey: from the climb, to the vista, and finally to the descent. Just sit back and let the master be your guide. On pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle." --Tranquility Tapes
