This is an instrumental album inspired by the 2017 Northern California firestorm.
This is an energetic response to the firestorm the raced through Northern California in October 2017. These instrumental songs represent the process that I observed and also a response to the tragedy with the idea that from the ashes raises the Phoenix. Fire is pure energy that transforms all it touches. It contains both destruction and resurrection.
Legends of Forgotten Power
This is a set of instrumental tracks performed not programed. This music is blend of acoustic and electronic sounds. Since the bass is featured on most of the tracks I think it gives them a strong power the hints at the machines run on Steam. The track "Friends" is a spontaneous jam performed by a loose collaboration I call "The Prairie Project". This project has rotating members. This version includes Myself, Chris Gennert, Daniel Gomez, John Murphy and Woody Matlock on Flute.
Simple Complexity of Trees, Dreams and Fire
This a trilogy of instrumental pieces expressing the complexity of simple things in our everyday life.
This music was originally created to have a rhythmic form to exercise with. The first and last track are at 140 bpm with cool down sections. I love the music so much I decided to release it as a trilogy expressing the complexity of these things in our everyday life. The music is preformed not programed and is a combination of acoustic and electronic sounds.
This is an instrumental journey from darkness into light.
The music I compose is intended to stimulate your imagination to create worlds that you can explore. Pilgrimage starts off like any Journey with hopeful anticipation and like most adventures difficulties ensue. As the traveler perseveres, light starts to appear and in time success brings ecstasy.
