/// … This is a record of encountering identity that attempts to return to roots, discover values, and express the process of
learning how to struggle well,
and making an offering of self
in worship to God through daily living… ///
is a space we inhabit,
a place where we encounter ourselves,
words become inadequate
in expressing the complexities and nuances
that characterize such an exchange..
the exchange moves beyond images,
at its essence,
a wordless communication
and gift of self.
Hidden Ground is a Collection of letters..
They attempt, in a raw form,
to reflect on the nature of hope -
How it manifests in relationships and in society..
these are a few brief glimpses into the struggle of
persevering in that hope for a reality that is
one that imbues meaningfulness
into the experiences
of suffering and chaos.
Recorded at Solid Sound Studios in Ann Arbor, Michigan on 08/17/16

/// a year in reflection...
gathering up all the pieces from near and far..
everywhere from the sounds of the Lifecycle Building Center
to the room acoustic of an old, crunchy Home Park house
and its gracious expanse of a backyard
to everywhere in, around, and between Atlanta...
in a letter of letter of sorts,
inspired by the thoughts and words
of a posthumously renowned saint,
Thérèse of Lisieux,
these fragments are a testament to the "little way"..
they are a precursor to the greater work ahead,
whether it be a more finished work
resulting in a record
or simply a stage in process
within this collection:
tracks 1-6 and 13-14 contain field recordings as well as demos recorded at work and at home...
track 12 is a sound collage containing a narration of a prose poem, ambient sounds, and a recording of Gregorian Chant from the Abbey of Clairvaux.. it was a demonstration for an architecture review at the Georgia Institute of Technology used to exhibit the concept of memory compression ...
tracks 7-11 are more or less demos of songs written during the past few years ..
They are lamentations at sometimes and songs of hope and rejoicing at others ...
lyrics found here:
...Alas! more is said with less..
“Without love, deeds, even the most brilliant, count as nothing.”― Thérèse de Lisieux
