    Immediate download of Caesuric EP in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.



The Caesuric EP is 4 songs with piano interludes connecting and is laid into one full track. It was all recorded by myself in my apartment while my roommate was at work and the upstairs neighbors weren't screaming at each other. The first song is a love song for Halifax. The second is a murder ballad. The third is a piano improvisation with vocals. The fourth is a love song for a girl from Hamilton. Colin Crowell added Rhodes piano to one song and mastered the whole thing.

This is the first in a series of recordings I will make throughout my life which will be separate from any proper recording I make further but part of my artistic form (proper recordings being those that are recorded and released under certain circumstance with the intention of live performance or commercial widening appeal or artistic statement or what have you). They are meant only to keep my hands busy, maybe turn on some people who follow my writings. They will be and will remain free in whatever form allows free listening.

Enjoy. Expect more to come in time. I move slowly.
