Album Notes
Fleeting Trance is the creation of Manasseh (Ma' NASA) Bernal, a Bay Area-based songwriter, producer
and multi-instrumentalist. A musical collage of styles, influences and instrumentation depending on the
song, Fleeting Trance refuses definition, category and genre.

“I like to think we have multiple styles without blending them all into one song,” says Bernal. “I don't
think we are a one trick pony and I think the longer people listen the more they understand what
connects us to the various musical forms/styles we are putting out there.”

No two performances are alike. Bernal invites different musicians to complement the core band of
Fleeting Trance, creating soundscapes that may sound vaguely influenced by performers such as Sonic
Youth, The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, The Beatles, Willie Nelson and Sublime, yet
entirely original.

The name itself – Fleeting Trance – reflects the juxtaposition of different concepts. “I wanted to put
opposites together because life is such a horrible contradiction,” says Bernal. “The project is my goal to
marry music styles that I love that aren't supposed to be found together in the same room.”

Bernal has been crafting songs for more than a decade, culminating in the release of recent EPs:

Debut CD "17," released May 2009
“Fleeting Trance," released January 2010
"Charm," release date November 2010

"What is perhaps most remarkable about 17 is the fact that it never gets tiresome. Fleeting Trance
succeeds in crafting an album with absolutely no filler, where more is definitely better," wrote Keane
Li, West Coast Performer Magazine, 2009.

Fleeting Trance Core Band:

Manasseh Bernal (vocals/guitar)
Craig Koozer (bass)
Daren Wilerson (drums)
Scott Robertson (guitar)
John Howard (pedal/lap steel)
