Album Notes
I am going to try to briefly talk about music as an emanation since this album seemed to just appear on my computer one day. I have strived to cultivate a way of life that will allow my creativity to grow and flow over my lifetime. I believe that if you steep yourself in the raw materials of an art form and you are honest with yourself about who you are, expression will manifest itself in many different shapes and they will all be you. And they will also all be everybody and everything. There is one infinite resource passing through seven billion finite filters of subjectivity.

Mastery of the body can lead to virtuosity, but that can take a lifetime. And we must imperfectly communicate and express our feelings as we move along the path. Our limits reveal our shape. Technology can bridge the gap between mind and body, an idea and its realization, in performance and the production of artifacts. Sometimes, our bodies are all the technology that is required. Sometimes we need more.

I have always attempted to allow intuition and a feeling to guide my work, even when I have introduced technical and conceptual obstacles to be overcome and employed. I feel that my most relatable and musically successful endeavors are the ones that seem to emanate fully formed and with no effort. Still, I am committed to the practice. And the letting go.
