Album Notes
This album is very idealistic, simple, and joyful. It is largely improvisational, with some structures. I hope you will find it brings you peace and companionship on a warm summer night under the stars.

This music is all about adventure and exploration, discovery of new places, friends, ideas and even new depths into consciousness itself. The album is pretty well balanced between major key, happy, joyful expression and a darker, more mysterious minor key side. The first piece is broken into 6 parts. Altogether they comprise "Bob's Theme", named for my dog Bob, and our long walks together. So Bob's Theme is the first half of the album and it's played on a pair of handpans, a Pantheon Steel Halo and a BEllArt Bells.

The second half is the darker side. This includes the second movement of a larger piece called Star Portal (played on Halo), which is all about imagination and dreaming of what's out there in the universe and the possibilities that traveling to the stars will bring. The last piece is called Low Mars Orbit (played on Bells) and features my Paiste Mars planetary gong. This gong is tuned to the Martian orbital frequency and it really makes you feel like you are floating in space. This track is much more meditative and quite long with no breaks in the middle, to encourage listeners to take the whole journey at once.

This music was made especially for stargazing in the warm Summer months (but it works almost as well year-round!). Enjoy!
