Soundtracks for Life: SOFT GUITAR WITH VOICES
Just recently finished this beautiful track for guitar and vocals. the funny thing about this track is I don't really play guitar. However, it was a joy to be able to pick out the notes on this soft and sweet piece. This is another one of the tracks made for the meditation project with my good friend and musician Julie Dittmar, which is due to be released this summer.

Soundtracks for life: Peaceful Ocean with voices
For the past several months, I have been working with my friend and intuitive healer Julie Dittmar on a series of guided meditations. I've been composing the music to go underneath these meditations which will be lead by Julie. This is one of the pieces. It's not so much music as it is an atmospheric soundscape to provide support for your meditation. These guided meditations will be released later on this spring and summer but i thought I'd give you a a bit of a preview beforehand. Enjoy. May you go deep.

SOUNDTRACKS FOR LIFE: PEACEFUL CHIMES WITH OCEAN
Many thanks for your patience! Here is another soundtrack for life from the meditation series I've been working on with Julie Dittmar. This piece featuresa set of Zen chimes set against a backdrop of waves recorded from Seal Rock, Oregon a few months back. If you have any trouble downloading please click here. Many thanks and enjoy!
WINgS ON THE WIND
Dreaming of eagles flying high above
Hearing feathers rustle with every stroke
The sharp eye that sees every little thing
From on high with wind over wings
SOUNDTRACKS FOR LIFE: PEACEFUL SANSULA
This is the third piece in a series of meditations I've been working on with spiritual teacher and musician Julie Dittmar. It featured the instrument pictured above called a sansula. This beautiful instrument is based on the African kalimba but instead of a wooden body, it has a synthetic membrane which gives it its gorgeous resonance. The piece itself is meant to be used for your meditation practice or just for a calm background for your day. If you have any trouble downloading please click here. Many thanks and Happy Listening!
Ok this is the second version of this song. I reworked the didge part to give it it's own space and added a few little tidbits for effect. the result is a very different feeling song from Preludium in C# Dancium. So, I thought I would give you both versions. If you have any trouble downloading please click here. Many thanks and Happy Listening!
SOUNDTRACKS FOR LIFE: MEDITATION WITH ZEN CHIMES
This is hot off the press as of yesterday. It stars the three instruments you see pictured plus the Pacific Ocean ("Mama Pacific"). I hope to put an album out later on this year with this music but for now, enjoy, relax and just breathe in the sea air. If you have any trouble downloading please click here. Many thanks and Happy Listening!
Just when I think I know a bit about writing music, something like this happens and pushes me to be a bit better at my craft. I've been wanting to write a piece that creates a lush, multi-dimensional soundscape and blends the tribal, ancient shamanistic with the modern. I think I'm on my way. Let me know what you think. I'd to hear what you experience in listening to this. If you have any trouble downloading please click here. Many thanks and Happy Listening!
Inspired by the lush lands that I live in. No, not Ireland but Oregon. Especially the Oregon Coast and Cape Perpetua. This place is one of my favorite places to go to let the ocean, rocks and trees speak to me while I dream. Let it take you to the places you are happiest.
