about

It's a strange time to be making this music that feels so content and at peace with life, at what is probably the peak of tension in America so far during this pandemic. Maybe I'm just trying to find a way to escape the reality, make my own space to exist in where life is a little brighter, if only for a moment.

The ideas on the track "Pale Light" were left over from improvisations while I was making "Touching the Dark," but they took on an entirely new form when I put them together here. It became much brighter and more beautiful, in total contrast to the feelings on "Touching the Dark" and the ideas that actually formed this track.

"Dimming" came spontaneously after I had initially finished making "Pale Light." It was almost like a snap back to reality, remembering what the real world is, and falling back into the isolation. I remember I recorded this track in the dark, with no more than a faint salt lamp lighting my room.
