ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I was thinking about moons, planets and their similarity to people – about concentric orbits and the gravity of closeness. Concurrently, in the final three lunar cycles of 2016, it seemed that these songs were somehow being extricated and congealed in the cool thin air beneath the supermoon. But the truth is, these songs are simply the collaborative efforts of the people listed below.
Like the supermoon, it may simply be a matter of proximity. A diverse concoction of characters paraded and intersected their way through these recordings in varying degrees – encouraged by a passionate and insightful guitarist – patiently captured and distilled by a veteran of musical architecture. I was the lucky participant – the playwright in awe of the actors – the edge of a triangle circumscribed inside of a circle. Everything contained within that circle is perfectly and inversely equivalent to everything outside of it. In-between is the thin invisible perimeter. We invite you to give in to the gravity and bask with us in the soft golden glow of the silver sphere.
