Simplicity, Patience, Compassion... Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.



Esalen Sky is the first release in a series that explores the experience of place. I began with attention to the sounds and rhythms of the Big Sur coast. Environmental recordings I made at Esalen are crafted into playable samples, then combined with more traditional instrumentation to produce music for contemplation and gentle action. I am grateful for the inspiration and encouragement of Tias Little/Prajna Yoga.

It begins with listening. To attend to what is truly here, without expectation and desire, requires choice. Choose this moment. Sound is a stream, invisible and sensuous, that flows through the present. I make music that supports mindful awareness.
