    Dear friends, I'm pleased to announce Crystal Consciousness: Ascended Addition will be out on 04/24/2024 - the extended, legacy remaster of this personal landmark of an album. I'd like to invite you to a virtual listening party 4 days early on 04/20/2024 at 7pm MST.

    It'd be most excellent to chat about the definitive cut of my 2011 release that kicked off so much of this adventure with all of you, before it drops. RSVP or show up on Saturday 4/20, whatever's clever! Look forward to connecting live. May the forest be with you...

about

This definitive remaster of the original 2011 album has been growing and evolving over the last several years, envisioned as a legacy to remain online indefinitely, until the end of the Internet. It is to date my most successful release by far. It has long since earned the deep polish and commitment to timelessness taken on in this process.

For the Ascended Addition, I carefully carved out a broader dynamic range to bring more subtle elements to life, for a more full spectrum, transparent and spatial ride. This was balanced with maintaining the feel and tone of the original. It's been a technically challenging tightrope to walk but I’m very pleased with the results. This project has heavily leveled up my mastering skillset. Some say you shouldn't master your own work, but after all these years I've learned to trust my own ears more deeply.

The original release was intentionally mastered white hot with heavy compression and lush harmonics by my buddy Shadow Attack. It is a style until itself with an extremely unique sound but sacrified detail and fidelity of my pre-mastered mixes. This OG cut will remain online for those that prefer it for good reason, or simply want to revisit past experience without modification.

From my own artistic trip, I'm grateful that I finally found the time to fully crystallize this personal labyrinth of an album, and more time and bandwidth still to share it with you all. In that process, the project fortuitously and fittingly expanded...

The Ascended Addition also includes two extra tracks from the original album sessions for the first time: (1) the Skytree remix of Lullaby For The Lonely by my friend and brilliant musician @mimipagemusic and (2) a rare track titled Akasha - intended to be included from the get go but temporarily sacrificed to a now-defunct compilation that served its purpose. For the first time in 13 years, this landmark album is complete - fully crystallized for today, and for the future.

To celebrate the original cut being free to download, this version will be just $1.11 for pre-order listeners to stream/download select cuts early, and completely free after the release date. For anyone that would like to hear the whole Ascended Addition early on 4/20/24, I will be hosting a listening party on Bandcamp at 7pm MST.

I'm also playing a show at the Black Box in Denver on May 4th, 2024, with Vibesquad and Erothyme, and will be playing out some of these tunes!

Released in partnership with my good friends at timewheel.net. Animation by The Art Of Waking Up.

May the forest be with you 💎💜🧠
