MAY 2020 - I have been busy using this time to finish up a recording that I started some years ago. It is a soundscape album composed to accompany the artwork of longtime collaborator, Micka Klauck. The goal is to have the timing of the music release correspond to an art installation to be held in the future. 

Also, the long overdue third album by Aziola Cry is currently being mixed at Transient Sound. The band website is also active again in preparation for the band's return. 

Finally, talks have started with Joe Kopecky to bring Backward Sky Falling back in order to finish the music that we started many years ago.
