Artist statement:

"Typically I use voice memos or computer programs to catch ideas and work out the really sticky ones. These pieces were recorded on iPhone or the computer program I use to monitor when I had the presence to press record. sketches of ideas that may be revisited, these sounds were not looking for a form or seeking to be known. These are complete, traveling pieces that resolve or simply end. At the end of the dismal and seismic year called 2020, I found these improvisations on my phone or my hard drive while looking for those typical fragments of inspiration I could use to make into something else through the ordinary alchemical process of making songs.
What a trick I played on myself! Thinking I hadn't made much music during the lockdown. Tricked in to thinking that I had to be inspired or productive during the pandemic. Thinking that any previous metric or vocation would be valid during such a time These recordings are things that got caught in the drift. These are some of what I did in the drift, without thinking.
Not playing shows or making a record for the first time since I was 19 has been truly confusing but again the trick is on me during the moments of fret about this. Music is eternal. And what a gift to find these keyboard recordings of sonic meander and repetition. What a gift to be able to play with music and what a gift to have it in the year 2020. And what a gift to find these keyboard recordings of sonic meander and repetition.
What a gift that music exists and on these recorded occasions I was simply playing with it, for play. Without lyricism or intention these are recordings of sonic meander and repetition rendered by keyboard. The exception is A Sunday 2020, and its preamble. It meets. However on this one I did use my old familiar hammer, the guitar for melodic shape. Certain criteria for inclusion here as the keyboard and wordless vocals were improvised just like the others.
These found ambient pieces were not edited to feel narrative, and weren't made with sharing in mind. Use them however you like. "
