Refuge
The Bird's Companion

Available on Bandcamp at: https://thebirdscompanion.bandcamp.com/track/refuge-single This track is a special release for National Drone Day 2015, a day celebrating ambient, experimental, and drone music in Canada. I took this "holiday" as a chance to get a little more experimental than usual. All of the guitars in this piece were recorded in one take using a loop pedal, and the synth and electric piano were overdubbed later. The piece is based on the idea of resisting fear, even though the world around you seems terrifying. "Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging." - Psalm 46:2-3

Ellipsis
The Bird's Companion

Available on Bandcamp at: https://thebirdscompanion.bandcamp.com/track/ellipsis-single This track is a special release for the first annual "Piano Day" (a new holiday invented by Nils Frahm). It incorporates sounds from my old Yamaha upright piano in a few different ways: First I played it (of course), then I sampled the piano and manipulated those samples to create some of the ambient effects you hear. Hopefully this helps you to hear the piano in new ways (as it did for me). "Ellipsis" is based on the idea of waiting for something even though you don't know exactly what you're waiting for. Most of the elements for this piece were recorded during a trip to Kitimat in Northern BC. In many ways, Kitimat is a town in waiting – waiting for the city workers strike to end; waiting to see if new industries will come to the region or not; waiting for spring to finally arrive in full. This piece is my attempt to capture that feeling of collective waiting and anticipation.

Not by Wind
The Bird's Companion

Available on Bandcamp at: https://thebirdscompanion.bandcamp.com/album/after-the-fire-ep License this track for film/video use at: https://www.communitytreemusic.com/tracks/not-by-wind/ The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” – 1 Kings 19:11-13
