Album Notes
This is a mood album. This album exists in that dark expansive space where the world is quiet. The rhythms seem to rise from within you, and the melodies ghost in from all around.

It's Pink Floyd through a dark jazz lens. It's Miles Davis in 21st century sprawl.
It's an urban river that flows underground through the crystal canyons of memory.

This project started with the simple 3-note descending melody which begins the album. I planted this 3-note seed in my subconscious mind, and over the course of a year it grew.

For me, the challenge of composing and recording music is to translate what's in my head to the outside world as accurately as possible. This album is a success. This is what it sounds like inside my head.
