*New Track for Upcoming Album*

This is an experiment in sampling with what I could find in my immediate surroundings.  Sound hunting has long been a favorite past time.  Last year I got married, and a friend gifted us a bamboo encased chime with metal tongs inside which are struck by a glass bead.  I muted the resonance to produce one of the main themes for this tune.  Also featured are a deck of cards, a glass of water, a Telecaster, a dice tossed on hardwood flooring, and some pens in a cup, both of which sort of stand in for a snare.  Written and recorded in my living room in Olympia, Washington.
