A year ago, life went sour, and I lost much of my digital life. Photos, documents, music, memories – all of it evaporated overnight – including my Japan-inspired EP, Mizu. I remember laying on the floor, numb; I don’t know for how long. Today, only Mizu‘s album art survives, so in its memory, we have Lost and Longing.

The song’s a chillstep piece that is very much like Uncharted. It prefaces something bigger, and coincidentally, it also shares Uncharted‘s key and instrumentation. In the back of my head, I’ve been wanting to upgrade the Into Ether EP sound, so it’s funny how that came together.

Like it? Then I have a favour to ask! I’m working on growing YouTube and Spotify, so if you enjoyed Lost and Longing, it’d mean a lot for this song to be a part of your likes, favourites, playlists, and/or collections. If streaming isn’t your thing, is also available over at iTunes and Bandcamp.

As always, thanks so much for your kindness and support, guys!

P.S. As an aside, if you own sensitive data, please look into buying an uninterruptible power supply and off-site data backups; I use a CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD and CrashPlan. Stuff blows up – literally – and it HURTS when it does. Local backups aren’t enough.
