Violet Luxton i hear tracks like Time Machine Dream or Extinct and
I'm suspended on a string of longing
a tightrope through time
twisting my head as if to see
in all directions
but there is no end in sight

inspiring Favorite track: Set I - Mamma Gaia.

about

"Michael has mastered a method of looping and playing that is on a pedestal all on its own. Ultimately [this album] is an exploration into what you perceive music, the guitar, and technology can do…then completely altering it. If you want to go someplace else, someplace new, get this album."
– Mixolydian Blog

These twenty-seven remastered tracks are fossils of my favorite moments in four years of fully improvised performances. They chronicle the maturation of my voice and sketch the outlines of an epic tour and self-discovery...

I never thought this music would be soundtrack to the art, lovemaking, yoga, writing, childbirth, and magic that it has. I'm honored that it resonates with anyone at all. But then, we live in times when cyborg folk makes sense. And throughout all of this, the goal has been to play the here and now.
