about

TERRAQUEOUS is an exploration into sound.

It came to me after a couple months experimenting with synths and found samples. The title represents the blending of earth and water. I believe this venture is about the melding together of all that surrounds us and the endless connection between us and everything else in the universe. How we are composed with the same stuff as the stars and the dirt. Water and air. Stone and leaf.

To me, it is also about patience and letting things develop naturally and organically. While also accepting imperfections and realizing how unique and special they can be.

Many of these tracks were recorded in one take. Others, took on different transformations and manipulations. All tracks were recorded in my home in Florida except 'Heat Structures' & 'Asleep (in the Trees)', which were recorded in Maryland and on an airplane respectively.

Endless thanks to my Girlfriend, Krystal, who was a huge inspiration to this album and helped me along the way. And to everyone else who shared their input and interest.

Thanks for listening!
