the latest album
Bodies of water – and the mysteries that lie beneath their surface – is the thread that runs throughout this deeply-layered audio travelogue. Inside these three extended tracks,
I take you searching for sea monsters in Iceland, waking the souls stranded underwater in a shipwreck off the coast of Cyprus, and exploring a series of majestic underground caverns by canoe in Thailand. My goal is to create a uniquely emotional experience. Ellison Wolf of Waveform Magazine described Water Stories as “a relaxing, positive-vibed, soothing listen.” It has also been featured on numerous playlists, and was named one of the best Ambient/Space Music releases of 2022 by Lloyd Barde.

Citizen Vinyl - Asheville, North Carolina
Michelle Moog-Koussa – Bob Moog’s daughter – will be interviewing myself and Dave Rossum of E-mu Systems & Rossum Electro-Music about the evolution of modular synthesis from the 1960s to today. I will then play a roughly one hour set (in quad!), followed by a question & answer session. There is room for a small in-person audience; there will also be a livestream in exchange for a donation. Click here for more information including links to tickets. For those who might be in the area, I will be in the Moogseum the day before playing with their vintage Moog modular, chatting, signing books, and having fun in general.

We Only Came to Dream
Aztec poetry (read by a descendent of the author), a Buddhist ceremony in Vietnam, and a Navajo elder sharing his wisdom provide the inspiration for the tracks on this album. Chris Meyer takes these seeds and carefully crafts entire musical worlds around them with each story slowly unfolding for the listener to explore and enjoy. Two pieces also contain flute solos by old friend Richard Bugg, who appeared also on the original Alias Zone ablum from 20 years ago, Lucid Dreams.
