Gratitude: Saman, Matt, Evan, Jennifer, Jeff and Chris for their invaluable contributions to this music. Martin Anderson, Miles Seaton, Mandolin Orange and Ryan Pickett for lending crucial insight and/or support along the way. Rusty Sutton, Will and Kendall for their creative contributions to this physical object. C&C Drums, Stack Ring Percussion, Sunhouse and Morfbeats for sharing their generous imaginations. Watercolor Envy is an homage to John Lurie’s paintings. Mom, Dad, Kate, Yan and Em, as always, for everything. All musical/life mentors, but most significantly, Milford Graves, for illuminating and clearing paths that were once obstructed or thought to be impermissible. Carson Efird and Sahaja Space for limitless love, inspiration and for serving as the main catalyst for this exploration/expression. This recording as a whole is humbly dedicated to all inward-searching, peaceful beings across the planet.
The mallet percussionist and improviser's solo debut is flush with nostalgic melodies and stirring dissonances—a rich, experimental universe well worth exploring. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 15, 2021
