Side Two

After nearly a decade of going it alone, this is the second release completed in collaboration with musical friends in so many years. Lana came to me with the desire to do some singing outside of her usual frame, and things snowballed from there - with contributions from David and Brian bringing it all together. As always, available via bandcamp pay what you like.

10 years of aboombong

Ten years ago I decided to see if I could put together a full album of music all by myself - something I had never done despite years of collaborating with others. The result was the first aboombong release - named via onomatopoeia from opening of the first song I put together for the release, "Three Days 'til Sunrise." Not sure I thought this would result in 12 releases over the next decade. Anyway, here is the first one again.

Forsaken Forest - Anna Beata Baranska

Ran across this film by Anna Beata Baranska (Poland) using a song of mine from almost a decade ago. Reminds me of the reason I release everything with a creative commons license. Apparently this won the 2019 Golden Leaf for Best Animated Short at  The Hazel Eye Film Festival
