Album Notes
This piece is called “Proprioception”, written for the musicians attending Intermission Retreat in Manchester, Vermont—a yoga-for-musicians retreat I’ve attended for three years now.

The concept of proprioception was presented to us early and often by our movement specialists Giulia Pline and Tiffany Fisk. Proprioception is a “sixth sense” that we all use to perceive our bodies’ position in space. It’s how we assess our balance and movements without always relying on visual cues.

In composing the piece, I did my best to enact a “musical proprioception” by intuiting the harmonic and melodic movements of this work without writing it down first. Like I do often, I sang a melody to a metronome with neither the visual cues of written notation nor watching my fingers move across a piano. I recorded and transcribed this improvised melody and then allowed the piece to unfold from there.

The end result is a soft and slow introspection which reflects the gentle peace and subtle transitions of inner self-work. “Proprioception” is a parting gift to express my gratitude to the musicians, specialists, and organizers of the Intermission Retreat: a musical snapshot of our time together.

This is an iPhone recording (with a little post-production by Alberto Hernandez Audio) of the second read-through of us all playing together in the living room on the last night of the retreat. You can even hear the jingle of Rudy’s collar (Rudy is our 'mascot', a half-bulldog half-Boston terrier) in the third measure of rehearsal H. It’s in time and in the key of the piece—it sounds like a glockenspiel note!

I’m only a few months in to being a full-time musician, and it’s been a transformative chapter of my life. I’d like say a special thanks to everyone who is contributing to my Patreon.

As Giulia reminded us around the campfire: “Change is inevitable. Transformation is optional.”
