Sean wayland plays piano and various keyboards. A few of the tracks feature music performed by computer controlled instruments. Some of the music is totally electronic and some of it is totally acoustic. Some of the music uses patches conceived by Sean which allow the keyboard player to use the keys of the synthesizer in a non traditional manner. This allows previously unplayable music performable in real time. These two CDs are the latest in a long line ( over 15) of albums Sean has created in the past 20 years.
The music was recorded in 2011 and 2012 at a few sessions at Avatar studios and Systems Two.
The bands were recorded by Aya Takemura and Mike Marciano. Most of the mixing and mastering was done by Sean Wayland with help along the way by Nate Wood.
