It started with a simple idea: make my music using the most organic, basic elements to get there. I am no virtuoso, so to get music from my head to your ears sometimes depends on my ability to conjure up some electronic wizardry. But for this album I wanted a different foundation. It would be my music and my ideas. However the individual notes would have, at least at their birth, been played a real person on a non-electronic instrument. I also wanted organic sounds: birds, streams, wind, etc. It had to be real and not synthetic. That idea was realized with this album.
