Those symbols were designed by the artist Sumudu Welaratna, I sent her the songs and the lyrics and explained a bit about the concepts behind everything, and she came up with the symbols in response.
Yes I might do that someday but since most of my music is composed electronically, translating it to sheet music will be a bit strange. It wasn’t as much of an issue for the live pieces because I rewrote them for the live groups.
Yes… things got a bit mixed up a while back. Unlike my other albums, Satellite State doesn’t have a concept behind it, it was just the first time I had enough songs that I felt comfortable releasing, so I put them all together and called it an album. Originally it ended with “Ende”, but those other tracks I sort of retroactively attached to it as I wrote them shortly after the original release and they didn’t quite fit anywhere else. I also ended up with two different versions of the album somehow and yes The Sleeper ended up with two different names. So really you can consider everything after Ende to be some sort of “bonus material” I guess and the order is not that important except it’s probably the best if The Sleeper is last due to how it is structured, even though The Scarab was the last one written, chronologically.
