Album Notes
Rick Strittmater works as a musician, producer and designer in the Maryland and surrounding areas. He has done work in television, film, and video. "Eta Draconis" represents a collection of ten years of studio work and various projects. The music is a dark, rich textural sea of organic, atmospheric soundscapes. The end result, a sonic garden of midnight flora for the headphone set.

Eta Draconis

Not only does Strittmater create some incredible music, on Eta, he also manages to tell a story without words. This disc plays like the musical equivilant to Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury. Not understood by all, but a masterpiece to those who understand the craft.

And just like a dog-eared beloved paperback, this disc is worth the investment as you'll find yourself going back to it again and again and again.

Excellent Collection!!
I really dig the soundscapes that this artist has created. It's a shame that more people don't know about him. Bravo!!! ;)

Listen carefully...
Hear that nearly sub-audible sigh? It's the sound of your psychic chi easing effortlessly back into balance. Do I jest? I think not! The Buddha came out of retirement to hear these tracks.

Do yourself a favor: quit your day job and listen to this music... you won't regret it! I didn't!!


Eta Draconis
I ate mushrooms once, this is much better!
This artist is truly a master at abstract expression. I highly recommend this journey into
your minds recesses & wander the path of freedom.
Enjoy often.


All things great and small
I work for a small ambient label located in sunny WA. I just received Eta Draconis yesterday before I left my office...so I had a rainy evening to listen. This is a beautiful collection of material. The multiple audio worlds created are amazing. I would strongly recommend adding this wonderful cd to any listeners library. Ah...the jacket art art, extraordinary.
