'Dreaming Into Being' is an exploration of expanded states of being. There is another world—both contained within our own and simultaneously surrounding us, like the germinating seed within a shell and the rarified atmosphere at higher altitudes. It is a place where the foundational structures of myth take shape, where the lovers, the dearly departed, the dream keepers, the sages and guides all reside, patiently waiting for us to discover them and share breath again. Like a temple containing gilded gates in every facade, there are many entries into this place of being, and for me the most potent is through the world of dream. In dreaming I am awake to my other selves, those old and lumbering giants that wear the faces of ancestors, genetic gods and goddesses, stoic sequoias, and unmovable mountains. They are all me, and all those radiant worlds and superhero sagas whisper my name on the great tree of dreaming as well.
May this music be a gift for your own dreaming into being, and the words below a roadmap of the journey I took in creating this album.
Falling in through the subtle tides of a slow breath, my self becomes boundless, unfettered and free. As each breath establishes the push and pull of internal rhythms, I ride an oxygen raft towards a landscape sparkling with neuron stars and memory planets. Places become pieces, pieces of me that were lost, now recovered in ultramarine and honeysuckle wind chime wonders. Turbulence foams on the cresting edge of consciousness from the large and ancient ways residing in the deep waters, echoes that sing the slow songs, slow enough to count lifetimes by, slow enough to court silence as a lover. Fearless, I focus myself into a depth charge, and seek those aqueous beings that can only be remembered as sensation, too large to be held in the confines of this sentence, and that picture, and those half remembered details. Safe in the perfect pulses, I am slowly rising from this other me, learning to breathe again and drink in the light that expands from the coming dawn like a prism.

To Martin Prechtel, and the small and forgotten things he cultivates so lovingly, each one a perfect seed planted in hearts all too willing to forget, yet biding their time until they can sing the expanding root song and come to life. To Sounds True, especially Jennifer and Mitchell for tending the hearth fires while I went out hunting for magic melody beans. To Aleph Zero for keeping my career moving even when I struggle and search for ways to uncover new meanings for the work. To Chelsea Linder, for being the best friend I could ever hope for, and a dream of a human that always has me pinching myself for reality checks. To Stephen LaBerge and Keelin, for their tender hearts and delicate earth dreaming in full color, showing the rest of us the way. And last but not least, to Travis Elmer, for showing me what it actually means to let go and find safety in the falling.
