portal iii is the name of an improvisational/experimental trio that I’ve been participating in. It’s quite a departure from the music I normally make, and I’m happy to say that our first recording is being released this month. I love the notion of deep listening, and the idea that music is playing constantly everywhere in the universe even if we don’t hear it or recognize it as such. Participating in this music with these dear friends has been inspiring and meaningful, but it’s also taught me to listen with all of my senses. There's only 500 copies of deep space drone vinyl for sale; You can order the record HERE.
