On the making of the album:

During my recovery from a recent hip surgery, I had trouble sleeping. I couldn't roll over onto my side and was in excruciating pain for the first 10 days. My primary pain management was a combination of meds that do the trick, but also make one incredibly nauseous and constipated.

Lots of fun.

Here I was, hobbled at 38 years by my martial arts obsession.

My 10,000 attempts to properly execute the elusive sidekick shredded my already very impinged labrum (hip). .

During my convalescence, I spent many hours laying in bed listening to all this great ambient music. It got me through some difficult stretches and instilled a deep sense of gratitude for intentional music.

Along the way, I decided that I'd like to make my own contribution as a, dare I say, “composer” of such material. This is that.

I wish you deep sleep, vivid dreams and deep restoration. May this music bring you something you need.
