“The [soft] collision of #Ambient & #EtherJazz was inevitable . . . “
~ random, innocent, Ambient bystander

A quiet, piano/guitar/ambient driven project for gazing out of windows . . . @ your favorite view(s) on days when introspective listening is the absolute BEST use of your time.

This is the most ambient-leaning ‘elements‘ edition yet; It’s been previewed multiple times as well as test marketed, pre-pandemic, in several “listen-only” theatres nationwide, & the main feedback revolves around the precision aural selections & textures represented in the project’s segued ebb & flow.

We had to categorize this . . . somehow . . . & absorbing it into the ‘elements’
brand seemed the only way to codify the thing (heh, see track 15). Not purely “Ambient”; not wholly “Jazz” (though it’s 1/3 ECM derived) – it exists in the ether somewhere . . . writhing & slowly evolving in the subdued, somewhat noisy quietude.

Enjoy . . . in these days of isolation. a great view can really make one’s day!
