ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Musically and culturally, I return to the oddities. The misfits, even.

The acoustic bass is a beautiful oddity - four large steel strings stretched over an oversized wooden resonating chamber, designed in total to produce low-frequency sound waves. Once pushed out of the instrument, those sound waves, as mandated by tradition, interact with and support the waves pulsing above. The bassist manipulating the musical device seeks meaning while drifting underneath, pulling, pulsing, pushing, and urgently communicating vital yet often subconscious musical messages for the listener.

Bubbling towards conscious consideration, the music on this CD centers the bass in the room, and immediately leaps towards purposeful musical eccentricity.

While the other instruments are present in the musical subtext of the recording, at the discretion of the listener, they must be imagined. Or left aside, as the recorded room sounds and ambient noises are intentional, showcasing the interaction between the instrument, the room, the mics, and the living individual. The resonators.

With the bass speaking as the creative voice, and interspersed walking bass lines representing metaphorical transitions, the CD is a musical memoir representing shades and interpretations of life lived in Wichita, KS, Rochester, NY, and San Francisco, CA. The ephemera.

Recorded live in the studio, some line level signal processing was used for effect.
