Inspired by the endless possibilities of throwing dice, breathing and all the forgotten details in everyday life itself.

Echoes of the past and reflections of the future.

Life & death, hopes & dreams, love & loneliness, sadness & delight, ...

We may all swim in different oceans but we do dance on the same shore.

Cosmos Mariner

Born in Texas during a locust plague. I now live San Francisco for some reason. Can’t seem to make music that fits into any kind of modern context. Or maybe it’s all intentional.
