On 21 June 2016 I broke my right wrist while hiking near North Bend, Washington ; the radial bone was fractured completely but thankfully there's been no evident nerve or tendon damage.
At the suggestion of friends I compiled these tracks as a pay-what-you-like release, the sum of which will go toward all attendant medical bills and lost income over the next several weeks. I would greatly appreciate your support, and hope you'll enjoy these pieces.
"The very center of its flame" was originally released as a CD-R with the limited deluxe edition of PERILS (Desire Path Recordings 2015)
"Madrigal" was originally posted to Soundcloud as an unmastered demo in December 2015
"Stone In Focus" is an interpretation of the Aphex Twin song of the same name, also posted to Soundcloud as an unmastered demo in late 2015 ; this version is mixed slightly differently. Original: www.youtube.com/watch?v=goDd02TTxBA
All pieces recorded with guitar and cassette tape at La Berceuse (Seattle, WA)
