"Animism" on Projekt

My latest CD (released June 19, 2012) marks a return to my hybrid electro-acoustic ambient progressive style that I first developed in earlier releases such as "The Blind Messenger," "Folklore," and "The Wolf At The Ruins."  This release features both familiar and unfamilar Western and non-Western instruments, such as lavta, violin, Marxolin and dan bau.  To coincide with this release, I have also released a free EP of past and present generative pieces in digital format called "Seeds of Memory" that is available from Thomas Park's netlabel, Treetrunk.
