Congruence is a stream of consciousness recorded in one hopeless night and the third part of Hypnagogic.

I remember that night like yesterday. It was in Berlin, where I lived at that time, a single room near Beusselstraße. I was working on the soundtrack of My Little Sister, half was done. No matter of daylight or night, I had my own schedule, which is to compose one reel per week, then sometimes go to eat, sometimes go to sleep. I had a fling, and that night we went to a techno party nearby. It was terrible, I couldn’t talk to her. My self-esteem was underground and music often lower it down, because I kind of hate my projects so far. In that mood, it’s impossible to be with others, especially with girls. I came back home and finished an entire bottle of vodka.
My guitar was nearby, and I started playing that melody. It was such a relief, the ultimate expression of my misery. So I decided to loop it for three hours, or to reach 5000 bars. Either one or the other could be enough to stop. But around 7 am I did both, and some extra sour was added after a couple of months. I even listened to it a couple of times, it’s so weird. That’s another perfect example of how music it’s a disease to me and the cure as well. It’s shifting more in the disease side, but come on.
