This recording was originally released in a limited edition of only 30 copies and given as gifts to the close friends and family of the members of Nux Vomica. The recording was packaged in individually made corrugated cardboard folders which contained a booklet on alchemical processes and featured a unique handmade collage for each separate package.

These rarely heard tracks have been digitally remastered and are now available for the first time in almost 10 years. The Tree of Alchemy Part I-VI is the first release in a series exploring the alchemical process through sound, improvised soundscapes, and ambient excursions. Each track is clearly defined in style and tone.
