A collection of slow, drifting ambient diversions from real life.

I don't know what I'd do without music.
It is my release. It is my chance to express ideas, thoughts and emotions that I could never share with words.

In my studio, I have found a way of exploring sounds easily.
Although I have played and moulded every note, every sound on this album, it feels like the music comes from somewhere else.

Using long, slowly decaying loops means I can never know exactly what I'm adding to. I just listen and delicately add touches here and there. The music seems to evolve of it's own accord but always, somehow, expresses something from within me.

I am often asked how I make so much music. Apart from obviously playing a lot, I have made it easy for myself: start with a blank canvas, play a note or two and add more when the mood takes me or it seems to fit.

Also, this album is 69 minutes long. It took 69 minutes to record. Why make life difficult?

Rambling aside, I hope you enjoy this music. As ever, there will be more of this sort of thing soon.
