littlechunk I really dig this album. I have put it on so many times this summer, it gives me perfect dreamy california, a sensation I miss very much.

justin ash One of my favourite goto albums is this one, what a wonderful way to express trauma in a transcendental way with a glowing hug of an angel on your shoulder..

about

album of ambient / environmental music based on 28 years of living in los angeles, california.

these pieces reflect the feelings i had on specific days of my life, particularly between ages 10 and 17. as a child, adolescent and teen, i suffered through many periods of intense depression. these 'blank spots' in my life (as i've always thought of them) have been very difficult for me to talk about with other people. working with music only (and no lyrics) to communicate directly about these time periods has been a healing first step.

'that day, on the beach' is not full of morose music. in fact, quite the opposite. i want listeners who hear this music today to find joy, calm and even playfulness, in the pieces. this feels like the right approach to me -- transfiguring these harrowing episodes in my life into something that can calm and uplift people.
