Selections from HEIROGLYPHS, MUSIC FOR THE INSIDE EYE, RETROSPECT and VIRTUES OF THE IMPOSSIBLE...


       The newest, Virtues of the Impossible, is a small group of quiet songs meant to be a bit contemplative in the face of strange and dangerous times, with five new short piano pieces at its center. Track descriptions are below.

       Retrospect is a collection of older songs that have lain dormant for a few years and also some new stuff. "2014" was written on the eve of the puzzling darkness that seems to have befallen us at the moment.      

      Hieroglyphs, recorded over a period in the late '90's, is a collection of songs and minimalist ruminations, mostly on guitar and piano. 

      Music for the Inside Eye is a set of recordings, originally released in 1990, that wanders a rather personal landscape of political and emotional thoughts from the decade before.

       Updates from older and newer recordings below...
