Programme Note

My music has always been an intimate investigation of the self. Sound has the power to reach depths which words cannot; it taught me who I was; and who I was becoming.

where the dark earth bends is about everything and nothing. It gathers scraps from somewhere in my future, beyond the curve of what I know. Reaching out of sight, I’ve collected possibilities that might be mine, or might be someone else’s, digging for a harvest that makes no sense.

A very important thanks goes to Weston Olencki and Mattie Barbier, who co-wrote their solo parts and jumped on this train to nowhere with me without even asking questions.
