I’m always so bad at building anticipation! Well, with little notice and absolutely no ado, I present the first in a series of instrumental pieces I’ve been working on for some time now, Daydream Sketches, Vol. 1. The idea behind the Daydream Sketches series is to capture the emotional feel of a particular moment in spacetime. I hope that each piece sets a mood and conjures vivid images of a scene. I’m very excited for this series and a number of future releases are in the works.
You may recall my post earlier this year about my renewed interest in the clarinet. As promised, clarinet plays a subtle but important role in the arrangemnet of track 2, Blustery Day. Expect to hear more clarinet in future Daydream Sketches releases, as well as a variety of other wind instruments with which I have been working.
The album cover photo was taken by my good frequent and frequent collaborator Juan Guerrero. More of his work will be featured in the deluxe edition which will be made available shortly on Bandcamp at a slightly discounted rate. The deluxe version will feature full pdf liner notes, individual track artwork(also courtesy of Juan), and accompanying vignettes! Very exciting stuff so be sure to stay tuned!
