The title Hidden Music comes from the idea that natural places withhold an underlying order and beauty that can be perceived and subsequently experienced emotionally by the human observer. Although the musical treatments herein are generally inspired by the natural environment itself, some are inspired by other associated abstract concepts. My primary intent for this music is to represent several subjective experiences of the outer world (and possibly the inner world), and to enhance a meditative process.
"Recorded during the second half of 2007, the twelve free form textural compositions (all ranging between 3-5 minutes) on the album have a minimal, harmonic approach, put together of flowing ambient drones with a melodic twist. "Reflecting Pool" and "A Cirrus Sunset" echo "Ambient #2" by Brian Eno and Harold Budd, while tracks like "An Empty Space" or "Snakes in the Grass" open the door to a grander, symphonic atmosphere.
It's the relaxing, meandering mood which makes this music an enjoyable listen. "Hidden Music" is primarily be available for download, but a limited run of cds is available from CDBaby.com."
