Realised on Bandcamp the 10 April 2015 , Peter  had developed his sound, employing more dynamic and rhythmic elements, particularly a greater use of sequencing on basslines and extremes shimmering pads.  This album consists of  keyboards D.A.W. and synthesisers .

The 4 tracks of digital album describe smoothly and three-dimensional, evolving sound and images of aurora that Peter wants to make us dream.
The sequencer that overwhelmingly dominates the technique softened by the romance of the digital synthpads soundscapes , are enriched by harmonic progressions and melodic in the drafting of arranging the sequence itself.
