ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About the Album:
When thinking about the mood evoked by the music in Time and Space, it’s easy to get excited by the dreamy and thematic material. It keeps the mind open to possibilities as the music leaves ample room for interpretation and imagery. Both “Blue Nebula” and “Dying Star” set the tone of the CD by introducing the first two of ten loops that are the staple for this atmospheric exploration. As each loop is introduced, it’s allowed to slowly evolve and inspire new ideas. Following the lead of the loop, some songs are left subtle and haunting, while others are allowed to breathe into larger thematic engines. Still, as each song finds a stride, the listener is left with the constant reverberations from the loop. These reverberations from the origin of each song act as a systematic reminder of the constant churning mystery of both Time and Space.

It was important to pay some homage to Pluto in this work, as the poor “planet that was” has fallen on hard times in the past couple of decades. Growing up in the 1980’s Pluto was held dear as an “actual planet” in the Solar System. Poor orbit or not, it’s hard to kick out the schooling experienced as a child, no matter how the “object” is classed today. In this light, “Pluto’s Aphelion” pays tribute to this distant question mark.

Thanks to my family (Bill, George, Tracie, and my parents) for supporting My musical efforts. Special thanks go out to Kelly and Madeline for enduring all of the hours in the music studio (and to Madeline for helping me name the songs). Thanks to Paramount School of Excellence. Their new Time and Space room is a work to behold! Thanks also to DKGR, Pepper, Apparatus, and Business Furniture for their help in creating this room. It is truly my hope that this music inspires dreams and inspiration for all those who experience the space.
