All sounds on this album were produced on the cello by bowing, plucking, and tapping on different areas of the instrument to create percussive sounds. The only other instruments used are an Indian tanpura machine and tabla drums on "Simple Prayer" and an egg shaker and hand claps on "Love Foolosophy."
Every song is written to be performed live with a looping station. Aside from some minor studio nuances, everything on this album is as one would hear it live.
Building upon the foundation of my last two albums, this next release encompasses the textural complexity, storytelling and Eastern finesse of my previous work while taking these concepts to new levels of sophistication. From ornate storytelling of ethereal realms to dark and moody textures rooted in percussive groove, the songs on this album weave a tale of adventure, introspection and awe for the inter-dimensionality of life.
