about

Work on 'Series 1' began in late 2008, a simple song based off the simple sounds of a shimmering marimba. As Ray closed in on compositional finish line of glory, he realized this wasn't to be a one and done. This was to be a piece of substance...whatever that means. The notion 'Series 1' was born. All this time just a work in progress. His autobiographical madness, 'Years In The Cage' begins near the end of the first marriage, traveling through various stages of self-defined hell and healing. It wasn't until early 2014, that the composition finally came to a resolving/revolving close.

"Series 1: Years In The Cage"
Dipped in madness, a tone poem (with no poem to draw upon) is cradled by gods and goddesses alike. The celestial mind of jazz, improvisation, song, soul, neo, past...all things music. A journey where music takes the lead in a selfish manner of pure reckless abandon...considerations such as genre, harmony, tonality, and rhythm took a back seat to the whims of the cruel mistress more formally known as "Series 1: Years In The Cage". Somewhere between madness and manufactured reality is where the soul lies, this soul is no different.

Through all of this my lovely bride, Elyse, was by my side. She was there for everything chronicled and not. Without her, none of this (nor I) would be. Simply be. Grace and ease.
