HISTORY:

During 2014, I was primarily occupied with two collaborations.

First, the "Vague Traces" release with Chris Russell:

ambientelectronic.bandcamp.com/album/vague-traces

Then, with Jourdan Laik on the new Time Being release, "A Place to Belong"

ambientelectronic.bandcamp.com/album/a-place-to-belong

But during that time, I also continued my experimentation with different styles of ambient music. Making a conscious effort to avoid "sounding like" other ambient artists, I simply cast my creative True Self adrift to produce whatever came of its own making. The tracks on "Swiftly the Sun" were born from that creative process.

Allowing this creative technique to just flow out of me has always seemed to produce better results than attempting to compose or otherwise enforce my will on the creative process to achieve a particular atmosphere or sound.

And although these tracks were created separately over a span of many months, their emotional content centers on common themes: isolation, loss, and a deep sense of irredeemable time. The sun continues on its relentless course, but there is always the hopeful balance: setting followed by rising. Everyday is forever a fresh start.

But trying to describe the process and the accompanying emotions aren't the same as listening to the results, so please just enjoy the music.
