about

All of the non-tonal audio (minus some bell tones) was taken throughout parts of Europe during the Ha Ha Tonka tour of 2013, and the music was either composed around it, or simply added to see what would come of it.

I wanted to write something that could only be liked, or disliked… not picked apart because of a lack of form, hook or predictable nature. Hopefully I've achieved that, or at least taken a step in that direction.

I hope that you'll listen to this piece with the same abandon that I wrote it. With a notion to discover something new. With the knowledge that there were times I went out on a limb simply to go there… because there are so many times we don't get to do that in our business. We have to hold back in order to make it marketable. What happened to writing things for ourselves without fear of rejection? What happened to wanting to have our own voice?

I wanted these real moments that I experienced to live in a new way, and find a new life through other peoples ears. It's seems seldom that we get to think of our surroundings in that way.

This project may have only been written for my own personal growth, but that doesn't mean that I don't want you to experience it. I hope that it encourages those that listen to go out on a limb once in a while… for nobody else but you.

To those of you that have decided to pay for the music that I make, I can't say how much I appreciate the fact that you see value in the art that people create. Thank you for supporting the artists that you enjoy in their creative endeavors.
