The Moon and Clouds

Taking a short break from working on new music, I step outside and watch the moon. One moment she is slightly veiled with thin clouds, the next she is perfectly clear. I love how the clouds can be blown so quickly while there is almost no breeze at ground level. Layers of moving (or not) air. Wishing every one of you a delightful day.

Quiet, gentle mornings

Big smiles, warm hugs and goodbye kisses. Like me, she gets up early – 4:30 on weekdays and 5:30 on weekends. She works Thursday through Sunday, so we rarely get an entire day together.

I get on the freeway at Sly Park, and pick my way down the side of the mountain to Placerville. The sky is just starting to lighten. There is a gradient at the eastern horizon, which I see in the rear-view mirror. Light bronze to deep purple. There’s a lot of smoke here from control burns being done near Kyburz.

It takes me an hour to get home if I don’t stop for coffee at Missouri Flat, which I usually do. Then, smooth sailing in weekend traffic all the way to West Sacramento.

These are quiet, gentle mornings alone in my truck with the music off. I think about her or about music or about work. Or about life and things I’ve learned and things I want to learn and how much I’m loving it.

Lightscape

Recently I’ve been sorting through some old recordings I’ve done, looking for material to include on future CD’s. Here is something I recorded in late 2004. It’s a departure from what I usually do in that it uses all synths, and no acoustic instruments.

I’m always interested to hear your opinions – let me know what you think in the comments below.

Thanks for listening – have a great day.

@The Moon

Hi –

A couple of months ago I let you know about a new project I’ve been working on. It’s different from the more meditative music I’ve been playing for the past couple of years – there’s some percussion, guitars and a lot of other fun stuff.

Today I’ve uploaded a piece called “@The Moon”. It still needs a little work, but it’s pretty nearly complete.

I’d love to hear your opinion of it – please let me know what you think in the comments section below.
