ABOUT THIS PROJECT
This is an instrumental album that has some words, though I consider the use of voice as an instrument and source of interesting sounds more than I would consider it a melody or lyrical element. In September 2015, I committed to a weekly blogging format. On Thursdays, I would publish a short piece of music composed that week. I didn't (and still don't) have time to write, arrange, and produce full songs with any regularity, so this let me quickly get ideas out and then I could continue thinking about them later. After 1 year, I had 52 ideas written. I then spent the next 3-4 months expanding upon, and often combining, those musical ideas. This project is the result. It is possible to find close versions of the tracks on my blog or in other places for free, but I am selling the collective work as AN album as well (click the BUY button in the header).
