about

2004. I had just graduated from UCLA's ethnomusicology program and was very tired of academia and putting my own music on the back burner. I was very anxious to record my first album, knowing full-well that my idealism and lack of expearience would leave the album full of mistakes.

My mistakes in Jr. high band nearly led me to quit music altogether. Since then, I have found mistakes not only to deliver invaluable lessons, but they also make for extremely honest and beautiful music. Well, sometimes.

released January 1, 2004

This debut album was recorded by Pete Reiniger and mastered by Charlie Pilzer, both Grammy-winning engineers that specialize in folk (world folk) music recording. The recording was done without overdubbing, multi-tracking, pitch correction, and little or no compression so that the volume actually changes on the CD much more dramatically than one would find on a commercial album, on which primarily only the texture (perceived volume) changes. This, in addition to the absence of drum and bass weakens any sense of solidity while intensifying the intimacy and vulnerability of the album.
