Recording & Mixing Ecdysis

Blips of Time (a compilation of themes over the past few years / predecessors of the album)

a metamorphosis - time alone - moving - surrounded by artists - carving out moments for painting - international tour - working - dancing in the kitchen - fixing broken heater - noisy and crowded head full of songs - falling in love with the sun - chopping hair nonstop - flowers seducing me in the spring - communicating feelings - synth land - eating soup - painting face and staying in for the night - wearing bandanas - bad haircut - replacing car battery - parks - riding bike - learning Italian - traveling to Africa - building a fortitude - reserving space - road trips - mercury mind - right ear plugged - New Mexico dreams - unlocking the alien baby - walking off the trail - understanding process
