The third in a series of dark ambient releases based on voices provided by various citizens of stillstream. This one features the voice of Rebekkah Hilgraves as The White Rabbit, and Bill the Lizard.

The music is generated completely and exclusively from the voice of Rebekkah Hilgraves.

C.P. McDill:
All the music is generated from only 7 samples. All the weird sounds are indeed made completely from the samples, and no other sources.

I couldn't bring myself to make it light. Whimsical yet dark is my usual modus operandi. All in all I think it came to 22 tracks, and at least 25 processed sounds that I didn't use. Had to whittle it down. Only 1 sample got Paulstretched. The rest went through all kinds of other processing.

There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the ordinary to hear the Rabbit say to itself

'Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!'

...but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out its waistcoat pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice startled to her feet.

-Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865)
