Well, the studio is only about 75% back together, but we are in the middle of a new record/(book?) and as they say… ‘the show must go on!’ …and so it shall… The tenth sound story from Orbit: A Love Story is Reverie. In 1890, right around the time he wrote Clair de Lune, French
When we last left our adventure, we were drunk, in a bar, in the future, with a trombone… (I should have brought a fez… ) Then something unfortunate, but inevitable, happened… My primary sequencing keyboard (Ensoniq SD-1) finally died. I have used Ensoniq keyboard controller/sequencers from very early on (including an ESQ-1 and a
There is a large (extinct) volcanic region on Mars called Tharsis and it is home to three giant shield volcanoes, known as the Tharsis Mons (mountains). At the base of Ascraeus, the Northernmost volcano, there sits a small modern building… Wooden floors and plush chairs look west out clear windows on an amazing view of

I was working late at the piano one night and through a bizarre series of accidents that involved a singularity, a holodeck, and a pickle, I ended up in the distant future just in time to sit in with the second greatest trombone player in the history of Earth. Recorded live August 28th, 2385.
‘Side One’ closes with an upbeat personal soundtrack for your cycle ride across space & time. It’s a fun and driving loop for those long journeys where the space between you and the pedals disappears. I’ve been playing pieces of this song live for over a year now (in a medley with ‘Only You’ by
