Lumerians most experimental release. The Weaning and the Dreaming was recorded on a 4 track tape recorded in the lobby of a sensory deprivation tank facility in Oakland. The rhythm section floated for 75 minutes, emerged and immediately recorded an improvised percussion track, played on the structure of the staircase itself, hand percussion objects and other features of the lobby. While the percussion was being recorded, the other half of the band floated for 75 minutes. The percussion track was reversed and two synth tracks were recorded over the backwards percussion. Originally a cassette only release, The Weaning and the Dreaming features two pieces of spontaneous composition at 29:55 and 29:35 minutes respectively. An Object Without Consciousness features forward synths and backwards percussion. Consciousness Without and Object features backwards synths and forwards percussion. A limited run of cassettes were made in 2012 and sold predominantly during Lumerians first European tour in support of Transmalinnia.
