This is also the debut of Ranaldo‘s group the Dust, […]

THE RISING TIDE–NEW DOUBLE CD

The Rising Tide Notes This set contains various recordings of the developing material for the album Last Night On Earth. My interest in presenting them here – in some cases in multiple variations – has to do with the nature of much of this material, which began on acoustic guitars at home and, with The […]

This long video (25min) consists of a selection of (mostly) iPhone films from the last year or so, inspired in large part by my trip with The Dust to India in September 2013, set to a long instrumental mix […]
