about

The album is a series of electronic sketches and variations. The pieces are named for architectural design concepts. The individual pieces do not necessarily reflect the methodology suggest by their naming.

This album could easily have been called "Nostalgia", and in fact, its title is cribbed from a description of nostalgia given by architectural critic Anthony Vidler. The moods suggested recall my creative but emotional time spent in Architecture School while trying to reconcile Modern and Romantic theory to find my own personal means of expression. Can one be both "Modern" and deeply and spiritually influenced by the past? Or is there an inherent unresolvable conflict?

The contradiction thus is that this largely synthetic music is meant to inspire feelings of longing. The creative process is solitary and ascetic. These pieces are rooted in dreams of desire, loss and memory.

Listen, preferably at night, in the dark, and let sleep come and take you.

Download included a bonus Video.
