Written and recorded over the course of an unusually harsh winter in New York City, Seasonal Affective reunites the musicians behind Fade to Fall, a six-track interpretation of the transition from Summer to Fall, for the second installment in a four-part series. Featuring guest appearances by composers Neil Voss and Bubblyfish, the compilation spans the full narrative of the season, taking you from the night of the first snowfall to biting winds bearing muddy sleet and ending with the first day you don't need a scarf anymore.

The artists on Seasonal Affective primarily utilized various pieces of homebrew software to transform classic video game consoles (such as the Nintendo Game Boy) into synthesizers and sequencers. Instead of sampling sounds from actual game titles, the user is able to generate his or her own instruments within the capabilities of the console's sound chip and arrange the results in meaningful and original ways.
