Album Notes
A journey of discovery as a stargazer was the inspiration for all these tunes. It was a time when our existence as a planetary society became real for me. We are residents of a galaxy with billions of stars with trillions of planets in a colossal universe. Like an ancient explorer you can go deeper and deeper into the sky seeing it’s beauty, experiencing humility.

Mt. Wilson is about a trip to this world famous observatory in California. As I inched my way up the twisty road through the San Gabriel Mountains to the observatory I passed a group of hispanic prisoners doing manual road work under police guard. As I past them I knew in a few moments I would be at the place where Edwin Hubble discovered that we live in a galaxy in an expanding universe.

The Veil in the constellation Cygnus is part of a trilogy of songs along with Aquila and Lyra which make up parts of the star formation The Summer Triangle. Seen through a telescope The Veil is the delicate, wispy remains of a nebula from a supernova explosion form 7000 years ago.

“Lanterns in the Tree Tops” is a quote from Canadian astronomy writer and visual astronomer Ken Hewitt-White. It describes an evening twilight sky sprinkled with bright planets.

Racks of analogue and digital music sampler boxes, effects, a massive 16 channel mixing board and a Roland MC500 midi sequencer was at the technical heart of this album in 1995.
