    Full album purchase includes two bonus tracks created with some of my fellow Asheville musicians. “Reaching Aleppo”, (with Sally Sparks) is an 18 minute extended synth-laden soundscape of middle-eastern scales and timbres ranging from raw to sublime. “Twilight Greeting” (with Sally Sparks and Greg Waltzer) is a relaxing ambient environment that builds to a fiery crescendo with an inspired flute solo and gorgeous piano work.

about

May 2015 - This album is long overdue. I should have recorded it or something like it many years ago but work, playing live music, and the rest of life got in the way. The urge to create prevails though and I’m already thinking about the next one. For those curious among you, here are a few notes on the making of these tracks. Created with Logic Pro X. All pianos are software or Yamaha MO8. Rhythms in tracks 1, 3 and 5 were created with Ableton Live.

Additional instruments include:

Swamp and Circumstance - Moog Guitar, Nylon String Guitar

The Last Wolf on Hokkaido - Shakuhachi, Moog Guitar, my (processed) voice

Hokkaido :: Last Wolf Remix - Shakuhachi

Xenography - Moog Guitar

Lamentation 1 & 2 - made entirely from my (processed) voice (TC-Helicon Voiceworks, Eventide H9 and Logic effects)

Açaí Moon - Alina Quu’s voice, processed by TC-Helicon Voiceworks and Logic effects

Toward Aphelion - Nylon String Guitar, my processed voice

Reaching Aleppo - Sally Sparks - Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2, Haken Continuum, Piano (Pianoteq)Chris Stack - Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2, Moog Voyager & Animoog
