about

This is a collection of some of the music I made between 2007-2009 in New Zealand that has gone unreleased for a while. It is mostly slow, introspective, and often sad. It was made during years spent not really listening to any music, sitting alone in the bush or by the ocean, in a sort of private trance. Geologic time.

It was a process of discovery, sonically and personally. And while I'm doing different things now (sonically and personally) this is still a part of my life, a step along the way to where I'm going.
