This mini album captures two completely different spaces, one a train station and another an old (almost historical) guest house in Kolkata. The emptiness in the train station during the times of travel restriction and the melancholia of the old pillars and verandas of the guesthouse carry the empty sounds of people who could have been there in some other time. Desolation could be an order of the time, could be consequences of choices and yet could be a storehouse of information. The apparent distortion or depth-of-focus manipulations are conscious efforts from the artists to add to the meaning of the album.
