Happy to announce we just released Dream Analog,
a true analog album!
This album is a collection of songs about waking up to yourself and what happens after you step into a new series of perceptions that change your life forever. Many of us have been realizing for sometime that the mundane physical reality is not all there is. There is much much more to the picture here on Earth. There are multi-dimensional aspects to life that can’t always be put into words. I hope that these songs will assist you on your own path of self discovery through these very strange times.
There is a certain essence that is retained in recording analog (to tape). It feels and sounds more earthy to me, more holistic. Even the digital files that were created after the music was mixed on analog equipment still sound better to me than if the music was initially recorded digitally. There’s just more there.
I hope you will get a chance to hear the record and feel it.
Analog recording allows the feeling in the music to be more completely delivered. WHY?
The recording process is completely different. In Analog recording (to tape) the whole sine wave is recorded. In digital recording there are samples taken that are then strung together creating square waves. So you’re looking at a difference in the wave form that is created… Sine wave or Square wave.
Analog recording reflects natural harmonic overtones and a warm tonal resonance because it is recording the whole wave form. Digital recordings create square waves instead of sine waves leaving out dimensions you might want to feel and know about. Even if later converted to digital, music initially recorded to tape (analog) fundamentally has more feeling to draw from for the mp3 or wave.
SO WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
Sound effects us in many ways consciously and unconsciously. It may effect the construct of reality more than we can imagine because we’re in it and can’t really get an outside view. Listen to some music that was recorded analog. Such as any album from the 70’s before DATs (digital audio tape) or look for new music out now that specifically says recorded to tape (analog) or AAA on the sleeve (which means it was A=Recorded analog, A=Mixed Analog and A= Mastered analog). See how it makes you feel? That’s the most important thing.
Human beings respond to analog recordings. Music recorded that way informs us in very specific ways. You’re human (I assume) — go listen to some music that was recorded analog and feel for yourself. You may find you access dimensions in the music that you have not felt before.
There are listening rooms popping up in Los Angeles and other places. They have a lot of these in Japan. These are bars/places you can go to listen to vinyl records. Some of them were probably recorded analog. Go listen and see how you feel.
Recorded, mixed and mastered analog. Mastered for vinyl by Bernie Grundman.
CD Mastered by Brian David Hardin.
Long Live Analog!
Check out the latest Single from Dream Analog.
Morning sitting quietly
bring it on home
bring it on home
over and over again
till you make it home
call it your own
Song of the Satellite
In the 2nd dream of the first heaven
book flew open to a page and
the mystery surrounded everything
In the early days of the desert
you were standing by a mirage
of an oasis you created
to keep you warm
Song of the Satellite
This song and the album, Dream Analog, were recorded to tape. That’s Analog! The whole sound wave is recorded. More music in the music. I hope you like it. Feel good!

Whatcha Gonna Do?
What happens when the sad part or a struggle in our life is over and sunlight starts streaming in? How do you switch gears? What are you going to do when everything o.k.? It’s easy to get used to things being bad and going wrong and in a way that feeling can become a habit and perpetuate that experience. We can get used to things going good or right too! We can get into that stream.
Who U R
This song came out of a real knowing that if we all can be our true, full Selves, then the world will be a better place. Everyone is special. Everyone is an individual. Everyone is unique. It’s a wonder we can communicate with each other at all but we do. Our diversity is our strength. Everyone is a shining star. It’s Who U R.
We just received the test prints from the record manufacturing plant, RTI. They sound super fantastic! Very excited for you to hear and more importantly feel this music! I am so grateful that the feeling I put into the music is reflected back so well in these recordings. Finally!
180 gram vinyl and CDs will be released April 2020 on Record Store Day!
Dream Analog was recorded analog, mixed analog and mastered analog. AAA. Anyone that has spent any time at all immersed in listening to records (that were recorded before digital recording practices) knows the difference. With Analog Recording you’ll find there is more feeling in the music!
