about

This recording primarily represents 1) a reflection on what has been (and continues to be) an extremely challenging time for humanity and many of our ecosystems, and 2) a continuing search for a different way of being masculine, and more importantly, human. A way of being more like air and less like stone. The notes flow in breath-time, sharing the extent of their beauty and values; encouraging us to center ourselves in grace, passion, intention, listening, patience, identity, imagination, and curiosity.

This album was recorded throughout 2020. It is an acknowledgment of the pandemic-induced tragedy felt around the world, and a reflection on some of the generally darker aspects of that experience. I hope this music encourages you to reject fear, baseness, callousness, and greed. I hope this music encourages you to process past, current, and future challenges as we navigate the painful distances between stars.
