Good morning ~
Just a quick note to say that CICADA WAVES is out in full today, right now.
They have dug themselves out of the ground, shed their exoskeletons, and taken to the air.
Please enjoy it!
I am very glad to be sharing this gossamer, bug-filled music and I hope I get to to play piano in more weird, beautiful places.
Or you can:
And if you’ve already done either of those things I’d appreciate and really benefit from you emailing it to a friend, posting about it, putting it on your special sleeping playlists, etc !
Many thanks to:
NNA Tapes for enthusiastically waking up the brood, so to speak
Gracelee Lawrence for helping me destroy a spare set of piano keys
the Hambidge Center for use of that incredible dance studio last summer
Bahareh Khoshooee and Hal Jacobs for their inspired video work
And sincere thanks to all of y’all for your really remarkable enthusiasm about this wordless album of barely-there chord playing.
For those of you within spitting distance of the Berkshires, we’re doing a very small release celebration tomorrow at a historic and kind of unbelievably sick venue. Keeping the precise location semi-secret to keep it safe, but please drop me a line if you’d like to attend. Still a few spots open! Here’s the [redacted] flyer:
That’s it for now - more soon, though ; )
