Insomniac hotel - The Source

Dear Friends,
Last week I released my 2nd album titled The Source.

In Dec. 2019 I stayed one week at The Source in Catskills, NY to fulfill a longtime dream of setting my music gear up around a fireplace in a rustic location to hike during the day, and record at night. It was a soul-refreshing trip spent amongst trees, streams, rocks, snow, ice, and my imagination.

I slept on the recordings for awhile, periodically listening back, as we do.
Finally, I did some minimal editing and mixing and sent the tracks that most defined the experience off to Taylor Deupree for mastering.

I brought a bunch of gear but these are the sources that mostly comprise what is heard:
soma lyra-8
acoustic guitar + ebow
kalimba
modular synthesizer
moog grandmother
bells
fire
water

Below are some of my favorite photos from the trip.

I’m considering a small run of cassettes, just for fun, but meanwhile, since everyone here was so supportive (!!) of my last album, I thought I’d drop a bunch of codes here for this one.

Greatly, greatly appreciate the feedback and ears as always!

Hi there. Thanks for sharing the backstory and photos. I have a similar dream and I’m looking forward to listening! I used code “tw3p-c4js” and I received a message that “8fzh-b3x3” had been used already. Thank you for sharing these codes!

Thanks very much Helen!
It was a dream I had several years ago and finally did it.
Wanted to do it again this year but couldn’t find and adequate space during my holiday period.

Appreciate you checking it out!
