Introducing the “Sleep Theory” series.

Originally I had planned this to be warm drone style release for sleeping purposes, but I found what I had created to be tedious and boring. In fact, after completing the first pass of the three tracks, I considered scrapping the entire project.

Instead, I decided to re-purpose and re-design the existing elements into something more pleasing to my ears. These are tonally active yet hypnotic soundscapes, and in my opinion require multiple listens to get the most use out of them.

It’s best experienced at lower listening levels, and headphones are encouraged.

Dedicated to Lucette Bourdin. 1954-2011.
Thank you for your gift of art and music.
You will be remembered in the hearts of many.
