I recorded this solo guitar album in a single one-hour take on February 14th, 2013. It has been edited for time and the pieces have been reordered. There are no overdubs — all of the loops and effects were done live using a variety of pedals.
The result is a sometimes brooding and sometimes hopeful collection of improvisations (and one folk song) that sound very much like the snowy day on which they were recorded.
I’m releasing the audio under a Creative Commons Attribution license, so if a piece tickles your ear feel free to rework it into something better.
Thanks for listening,
