Album Notes
All the pieces on 'Day Trips' are collages made from recordings of places visited, sometimes alone, sometimes with family or friends.

When you find yourself somewhere new you can hear (and record) the sounds and mixtures of sounds that are unique to that location. Once you're home again, sift through them, pick out the bits that you like. Play with them, mess with them, collage them.

These pieces were once described as "almost music."

While abstract and without melody, they nevertheless betray Schickele's background in both songwriting and chamber music, with repeating phrases and a sense of texture somewhat like noise yearning to be considered an instrument.

Here are the places represented on 'Day Trips':

Riverfront Green Park, Peekskill, New York.
Forest Park, Queens, New York City.
Saratoga Park, Brooklyn, New York City.
the Museum of Natural History, London; Cardiff Castle, Wales; and Dungeness, UK.
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.
the carousel in Forest Park, Queens, New York City.
Northern California (Arcata, San Francisco, Berkeley).
Storm King Art Center, New Windsor, New York.
Marine Park, Brooklyn, New York City.
Grover Cleveland Park, Queens, New York City.
