ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Music that could be listened to and yet could be ignored... perhaps in the spirit of Satie who wanted to make music that could 'mingle with the sound of the knives and forks at dinner.'"- Brian Eno

"Boxcars in Dreamland" by Mike Kovacs is a unique blend of music whose minimalist style is perfect as an accompaniment for driving, meditation and yoga, while simultaneously being complex and exciting enough that you will want to give it all of your attention.

The original idea for this album came at the request of a healing arts therapist, who was looking for something different than the typical cookie-cutter new age music to use in her work and blend with the architecture of their new space. Using his background as a classically trained composer and road worn rock musician who studied at Rutgers and has years of original guitar work under his belt, Mike Kovacs created this groundbreaking album in which only guitars are used! There are no samples, no computer plug-ins, and almost no Protools found in "Boxcars in Dreamland." Two of the songs were recorded direct (live) to digital tape.

Some of Kovacs' influences include Philip Glass and Brian Eno's "Discreet Music" and "Music for Airports." The final track, "Here/Gone-Always/Never" is a Michael Hedges style guitar piece performed live on an alternate tuned sustainer guitar. However, the sound of this ambient album is totally original and unlike anything you have ever heard before.
