By pre-ordering the compilation, listeners will get access to Ganser’s contribution, “Told You So (Live @ Altered States).” Here’s what Nadia Garofalo of Ganser had to say about Nuçi’s Space: “Every musician we know, ourselves included, have struggled one way or another with mental health over these past eighteen months. Resources like Nuçi’s Space are essential to the lifeblood of the music community as a whole,”
