CDs are here!

Canções Profundas (Deep Songs) is now released by local label Prefecture Music on CD and as a digital download, both available directly from me via my BandCamp page. The piece is a cinematic mix of field recordings, improvised music and electronics mapping the journey of my Portuguese ancestors from the Azores Islands to California, featuring some first rate Seattle musicians and Azorean viola da terra ace Rafael Carvalho. The download version includes an extra track of just the soundscape recordings, minus the improvising musicians.

Also, percussionist on this piece and Prefecture label boss Paul Kikiuchi has a beautiful new album out, released at the same time as mine. Well worth your listening.
