in 2011, I had some bad weather roll through. This storm gave me pause to contemplate where it was I had come from, where it was I might head and why it was I had committed myself to this life. The result from this interrogation of the self is this modest publication.
This is not a guide to fame and fortune (Lucifer knows I could never draft such a tome).
This is however a guide to assist in aspirations of sustainability of practice, development of community and recognition of the fact that creativity is not a given, but something that is earned and requires tending and attention, especially if it is to deepen over time.
I hope you find its gentle provocations and reflections of use in your days.
PS, to be clear this is not a sound work, it's a PDF of the guide. Pay what you feel it's worth, and please share it with friends and family. The silence track is there just to help bandcamp do what it does best ;-)

I can't put into words how it feels to listen to this album. The sensation of increasing anxiety and dread throughout the stages is unique. It makes me want to keep listening and theorizing about what's happening in the songs, especially in the post-awareness stages. D0DGAMES
