about

Life is a river- in both the literal and figurative sense. A constant flow of energy, matter, creation and destruction; an eternal story. As conscious animals in bodily form we are the riders of currents. As potential and spent energy matter; we are the currents. We are dropped off here- unknown from where we came; into a world we do not know. And we do not know where we, or the whole picture is going. What a strange predicament. To be dropped off in the middle of infinity, unaware. To navigate the waterways using wisdom, brute strength, and luck. I often ask myself, how does one converse about such seemingly vast circumstances. The only way is to jump into the river from where you are while the story is still being told.

Instrumentation: synthesizers, electric guitar, bamboo flutes, shakers, stones, seed pods, conch shell trumpet, shells, wind chimes, hand drums, field recordings, and other sound sources.
