about

I have been accompanying yoga classes with live classical guitar music for almost a decade. This Side of the Mountain represents the filling out of my solo guitar music in an organic way. The addition of bass, piano, and cello allow for musical concepts to be expanded beyond what is possible on the solo guitar but without losing the meditative quality of my solo playing. The river sounds were recorded and sampled from my home in Brownsville, VT and the birds were recorded in Cornish, NH and Omkareshwar, India. The natural world is an endless source of inspiration for me and the addition of these sounds seemed to frame the composition in a way that gives the listener a sense of the physical space which surrounds our home and studios.


Lyrics:
Maha Mantra:
Hare Ram Hare Ram, Ram Ram Hare Hare,

Om Janaha, Om Tapaha, Om Satyam,
Om Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi
Dhiyo Yonaha Prachodayat
