Responses

The soundscapes took me to a different dimension, a different place. After the ride of The Storm at the Belltower, I need a cigarette. In the Haunted Parking Lot, the vocals at the end made me cry. It really moved me, got to me, hit something deep. That doesn't happen to me often. -- Kristen Anderson, daughter of symphony conductor, The Plant Based Network

 

Don’t let anyone tell you you are not a Magician. Your music and tastes are revelatory to me. The music you play especially. I listen on headphones while I’m writing or meditating. I can hear your fingers! It feels like I’m in the room, basking in your energy, I am alive! I see the value of metal, especially the vibrations over and over, it’s liberating and freeing and meditative and when your hands are on the guitar, wow- I feel undefeatable . Please don’t stop. -- Ernie Vecchione, screenwriter and author, (Sex Ed, Devil's Catch, The Amish Girl) IMBD

"Sleepwalking in Snowdrifts" makes me feel a 'great' salt flat vibe.... (N. central Oklahoma) -- Alan Trenary

"Sun and Moon:" Wow! This sounds like a background track to a late '60s poetry reading in a candle-lit squat, air redolent of patchouli oil and weed. -- Ian Gray, musician, married to famous musician Claire Lynch, project manager at Lansdowne Electronic

"We Are Earth:" Lovin' it! The music has got that crunchy stoner vibe, with a dark hue I can appreciate. -- Billy Goate, editorial board at Doom Charts, Editor and Chief at Doomed and Stoned

"For Russia" Fitting title - I can hear it as theme music for a remake of Dr. Zhivago. -- Charles Benslay, US Navy

"For Russia" thank *you for bringing the good feeling and most of all Surprise! -- Pablo Schwartz, airport

"For Russia" Dark and mysterious, menacing. Makes me wish I was a movie maker, i would use this somewhere. -- Ed Silberman, who composes Purim Spiel musicals

"Storm in the Belltower" That's really good and I can't think of anything to compare it to. Maybe early Sonic Youth, or Half Japanese --Rogan Russell Marshall, musician and filmaker

What you hear on this page is not in a polished form to put on Bandcamp, Spotify, etc. Soon, all of these audios will most likely disappear. Everything will be in finalized and put in those locations, so you can join a mailing list to keep up with them at that time, and they'll be available for high quality download. Thank you so much for your interest!
