Album Notes
This work began its conception in the mid 1990's when I was traveling around the South Pacific, and then subsequently on to Southeast Asia. Many a night I stayed up to look at the wonderment of black sky bespeckled by glimmering gems, and cut loose a few solitary notes that lifted to the stars as an offering of sound to all the inhabitants of the universe from before the beginning of time.
I have gathered together here the memory of those notes and the places they were played on this planet.
This should be listened to as one continuous piece. Each phase is a layering of as many as 25 individual tracks to arrive at the completed work. There are quite a number of flaws in the recording. I removed the ones that I felt were detracting, and left the ones that I felt added character. If you disagree, keep listening, and see how you feel at the end when the whole piece has been heard.
I want to give a shout out to Brenden Power, not only for his inspiration, but also I use a couple of his custom tuned PowerBender diatonic harps. And I want to mention other inspirations: Christelle Berthon, Jason Ricci, Adam Gussow, as well as many other harp players who have both entertained and inspired across the air and wire.
And finally a big thank you to my brother Jeremy Hunt whose music can be found on ITunes and Amazon, and who is not only one of my greatest inspirations, but one of my closest friends.
