My score to moments dark and luminous, profound and playful... Music that transcends the boundaries between the electronic and acoustic, artifice and wilderness, deep chill and visionary ecstasy. Headphones recommended.

Recorded live without studio overdubs on tour in Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas from June to October 2014.


"Michael’s tracks are experimentally symphonic, layered to perfection, pleasing to the ears, as if Mozart and Random Rab did a mashup series, while taking a stroll through the forest. Sophisticated. Bending the lines of spirituality, electronic technology, and organic instruments, while embracing the intricacies of sound, and not pushing the barriers of volume, Garfield knows what he is doing, and he is damn good at it!"
– Souls In Action

"Like walking through a cathedral being constructed before your eyes. Stained glass shiftin' around and mutating with digital light statues."
– Chance Roberts

"'Hopeful' is so amazing! It made me tear up within the first two minutes and had made it into my top twenty favorite songs of ever by halfway through."
– Xandrie Sampson

"A great wake up soundtrack. Your music is so thoughtful, it would be amazing to collaborate with you as a movement artist..."
– Nnedi Nebula

Track Name: Oversoul
Body of a dying caterpillar
living blueprint of a butterfly
microcosmic birth and killing
weaving in a particle of living light
The ingression of transcendence
and resistance of the way things are
The event horizons all unfolding
rolling into boddhisattvic awe

Yes, we, I, they, it, you too
No known, no, to know except the whole
Larva and imago both in dream truth
Armies joined within our oversoul
Track Name: Transparent (ft. Samuel Wexler)
You wanna talk the erosion of privacy?
Any hill goes, you're bound to find some bones in there.
The holy mountain of the separate self
Falls into ocean like an ice shelf.
None of it comes with any anomie,
A bloom of novelty and sunlight, not enemies.
But as our skeletons become transparent,
We would be scared if we weren't sharing it.
Track Name: We Were Changed
Time trickled away and after that
everything that came before seemed insignificant
No afflictions, no predictions or prophecies
None of it made sense to me
We were changed
Track Name: Edge Of Your Life
Park your car at the edge of the street
Park your house at the edge of your life
And dry your eyes tonight
