The Spanish Inspiration 

 Nobody expects The Spanish Inspiration!

Synths, pads, percussion, sequences and field recordings make up this compilation of sounds from Andalusia.   

Southern Spain is a favorite destination of Julie and I. Fourteen years of visiting the region confirms our love for it's friendly people, natural beauty and deep cultural history. Compiling this collection helps to keep us warm and wanting more during our cold winters in Wisconsin.
We hope you enjoy.

                                           2012

It has only taken me nine months to conceive and prepare this collection for publication, which isn't too bad considering how long other projects have been "in the works". Life and time does not always permit the opportunities to spend with what is primarily a hobby at this moment.

2012 came to be strictly as an organizational tool in a series of folders on a removable USB hard drive. Not having any musical goal whatsoever in that year, other than experimentation and expression through sound, the album turned out to be the rationalization for this release. Some tracks are one take "jams", a few were partially planned and still others were built slowly... then left for dead.

Several started off with different ideas and titles, but eventually progressed into their final state, usually by accident. Six landed up as the basis for videos (links are provided for their viewing).

All of the music has a personal connection and reason for it's existence to me, but no associating theme to each other, so I lumped them all together and called them 2012 in honor of the folder.

There's also a 2011 and 2013 folder. That gives me another idea...
