My first full length album, Touching the Dark, was made from this vision to create an experience that places you in the middle of an unhurriedly swirling abyssal ocean that could swallow you at any moment, but never quite does. Instead of being taken by this formless darkness, you could simply watch it peacefully and find beauty within its movements. I recorded many piano improvisations through late nights and manipulated their sounds, creating the intimate ghostly soundscapes heard across the album.

Unlike my first release "Forlorn," this album had a focused idea from the beginning, and was put together with much more intention. Every track was made to support the main idea. Because of that, I consider "Touching the Dark" to be the real beginning to my career. That's not to write off "Forlorn" as a failure, but this album is where I really was able to take my music seriously and give it my all. I'm very proud of this project.
