splitting label release schedules with Laraaji, Laurie Spiegel & Wendy Carlos, the unique Florida raised soulmate duo released their privately pressed debut LP at an axis where post-prog rock met proto-new age & ambient electronic music.

At the turn of the 1980s Bob Stohl & Kat Epple embarked on a 10 year spiritual journey, unifying their state of the art modular synth soundscapes & organic compositions of flutes, bells & field recordings & furnishing a self-pressed cassette tapeography of inimitable Emerald Web music for their self-funded Stargate label. This compilation comprises early tracks from their debut vinyl release & the following 4 rare cassette only albums from 1979-1982.
