  • Retreat – First Mix

    This one came to me on the morning of September 7, 2015… It’s been stewing for weeks now, bubbling up in my consciousness every now and then. It always calms and centers me, whenever it arises. Recorded with Loopy on iOS. Arranged & processed in Logic X.

  • Little 1 – Heartbeats Mix

    2015 March 15: added Milena’s sonogram of Kinich’s heartbeat in her womb, and little Sophia greeting me at the end. Also, added a gentle, subtle beat (kick, snare, two rides). And finally got around to transcribing the monologue, which was inspired by hearing the thrush of little Kinich’s developing heartbeat, and upon which the whole […]

  • 6: Amara, “Musical Minds” – Sun loves Earth, humming version

    A humming version of Amara (the 6th track/painting in Libba’s 11). In keeping with the no-lyrics theme we’ve already got going in the 11, this version replaces the original version’s sung lyrics with humming the melody. I like this version. It’s really sweet. I added a touch of reverb to the melody in this version, too. […]

  • Music for the Next Phase of Evolution

    Oystein Sevag: Space for a Crowded World (2012) My favorite album in quite a few years. Sevag is not only a technically-masterful keyboard player and synthesist, he is also a tremendously sensitive musician who leads first with his heart, then by his ear, and only finally by his brain. I am a big fan of […]

  • Tamara Cortez’ Flow Notes: Gifts of a Truly Compassionate & Loving Healer

    Tamara Jo Cortez’ new book, Flow Notes (E-book version reviewed, available at Balboa Press or Amazon) may at first glance seem a sweet, simple collection of positive affirmations. However, while her notes do positively affirm my oft-disturbed spirit and give rise to smiles in the same way as do sweet and simple post-it notes on […]

  • Snores

    This is an old recording, from probably 2007 or 2008, of Milena and Rucie (our cat at the time) in a snoring duet. They woke me up one night, and it was so funny that I *had* to snag my iPhone to record their song. Sorry for the noise– our space heater was on, but […]

  • Hold Me Now Hold Me

    Fun, easy, shufflin’ little ditty outlining my feelings about loving relationships. Lyrics: Hold me now hold me I want to survive In order to hold me I need you to thrive Before you can hold me I need you alive Hold me now hold me We both gonna thrive Dancin to hold me We’re rockin […]

  • Surging Toward Oneness

    Surging toward Oneness; toward the reunification of all that I am, and all I am yet to be, simultaneously; no less me than I am now. Surging toward an expanded perception of all that “I” really am, not exchanging one limited expression of limitation for another. (inspired by “Oneness,” by Rasha) (website) (Amazon)

    Meditation on the divinity of inner beauty. Original tracks recorded the morning of May 3, 2012. This sketch assembled & mixed August 11, 2012.
