about

These tracks were the incidental music for my life over much of 2008. Whether I was driving, shopping, working, or reading chances are this music was the score. It will always be tied to this time in my life. These are photographs of moments etched with sound upon trembling air.

After a busy year with musical collaborations and compromises with Marc and Prenzie Players it was my turn to stretch out and do some things on my own.

Presented here almost chronologically to their creation, the first three tracks are postcards from summertime and are painted in easy swirls of warm colors. The next three were realized during autumn and remind me of my drives searching for sunsets along harvested fields in cool weather. The last three were written during the winter and are more still and blue colored than the warmer piece which preceded.
