From Cumulus to Earthbound, these compositions embody an emotional journey spanning three years. Life is never straightforward and is full of challenges and this is no more so than my life. These twists and turns are reflected in my music. From the beginning to the end, each component of each of my works comes from deep within. When I am in the studio I take a deep breath and wait for a spiritual message from my creator in music. I believe that, as artists, we are just messengers who have been commissioned to write music for you who listens. Each note is as important and each chord is necessary and essential to this piece. My own personal moments are answered by my spiritual creator to explain in music that which heals our own soul and spiritual being. This is my journey shared with you and made possible because you listen.
My inspiration is an amalgamation of my spiritual journey and what life has placed in my path. From jazz, fusion to ambient and cinematic influences, every track captures my moods and emotions.
Much of the sounds have been sourced organically and naturally evolved before using a range of audio processes and effects to transform each individual composition to create a complete story that is this album.
Thank you for listening and becoming a part of my Journey.
I take this opportunity to thank the few special people who made this journey possible; beginning with my dear wife Si-Ling for all her love understanding support and giving me the courage to be an artist as well as providing her spiritual guidance, for which I am truly forever grateful; my loving mum who has been there for me in every way; my brother Joaquin “Joe” Claussell for the many years of friendship and his encouragement and vision for this album; To Akemi Shimada / Joon and all at Sacred Rhythm Music, Cosmic Arts and Atypical Dopeness for their support and making this album happen
