New Music Coming Soon

-Philip Glass

-Philip Glass

I am super nervous about putting out my music. I am anxious about it for a number of reasons:

1) The world is a pretty fucked up place right now and it weighs heavy on soul. The last thing I want to do is talk about myself while there is some fucked up shit that humans are doing to one another.

2) The music that I have been working on for the past five years comes off of the back end of the death of my father, the dissolving of my previous project In Medias Res, and general disillusionment. So I have been walking wounded and this music is a bit raw.

3) The up coming album is narrative and lyric based. For the most part, Holy Hum has been a sound based project. This upcoming new album is entirely about my father and I don't really know how I am going to feel about having this story out in the world.

4) You might not like it.*

*But I recently came across this paragraph in Philip Glass' memoire and it really reminded me why I do what I do - which is - I just do.

I don't really have an answer for why I do it. I do know that making music makes me feel better and it quiets my mind and the results of that process coalesced into this album. So I'm sorry but this record is not for you. It's for me. It's for my late father.  

love,
