Thank you so much to my buddies Fluvial Phonology, Noir Native and Thinking Fish for helping me put together this release. Without them this would have not been constructed. This EP is shorter then intended, imperfect, organic and raw as the titles and spoken words. I intended to take these compositions further; however its becoming impossible for me to do so. Some of you may know I was born with cerebral palsy. Its come to really effect me tremendously now that I am 30 and the war my two sides battle through each day is taking a toll on this vessel. Whether I sit or stand,or run, walk, skip, jump I will have intense spasms, muscle tension, aches, nerve issues, headaches, migraines neck pain, arthritis,knee and joint issues. Long story short theres a lot going on with my body. I am out of work and qualify for very little disability money from my government. Though music production isnt physical it still requires siting for long periods of time ( I cant for no longer then 20 minutes); my usb ports dont work so I am forced to type and use a touchpad mouse which has given me severe arthritis. It also requires staring at a screen excessively and ear drum abuse and I am already very prone to migraines. Still I love it so much at times and I am able to get some stress and emotion out but these restrictions both physical and technological are preventing me from finishing my projects.... My last pair of headphones busted so now I am forced to release this as is. So here they are...loose, raw and very organic. This project is also a manifestation of the inability to micro edit my percussion these days thus having to to shift my sound and composition elements. With all this being said I am really trying to get money together to expand my setup to accommodate all these things. Thanks so much.
