This album started life as a series of experiments in new ways of generating drones. The experiments proved successful but took me to a space I had not planned to go. I've been listening to them more than any other music for several months now. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

I was listening to them once and turned them off thinking I might be disturbing someone studying:

"I hope this music wasn't bothering you."

"Oh, that was music? I thought it was the air conditioner!"

I had thought to call it "Music for Air Conditioners". A cute title but it does nt seem to resonate for me the way "The Sheltering Sky" does.

Abstract painting is abstract. It confronts you. There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn’t have any beginning or any end. He didn’t meant it as a compliment, but it was. It was a fine compliment. Only he didn’t know it.
