It's strange to think that we're in the 63rd week of the current pandemic. I hope you're as well as you can possibly be, and that you're taking care of yourself--in both material and non-material ways.

Unlike the last few weeks, this one had a notable absence of technical drama leading up to the performance, so it wasn't a struggle to get into the right mental state to encounter the music. There's some 60-cycle hum in places, but that comes with the territory of an electric guitar and fuzz pedal. It's in keeping with my roots in punk-rock ambience.

This one uses some longer tones (courtesy of the eBow) along with shorter, and the pieces move more slowly than some recent ones. I'd had the thought of something slower, with more space--pieces you could hang out in for a while, and ease into another state of mind. I hope you find it helpful in that way.

Thank you for listening!
