"Brief Light is a CD of film-esque music, many guitars, and the occasional synth tuned percussion bit. My personal favorite of all my work to date, it is a testament to the hard work put in by all involved. Brief Light is a combination of all the elements of music that have inspired me over the years--ECM-style jazz, Prog Rock, Minimalist composer Steve Reich, Peter Gabriel's Soundtracks.
Persimmon begins with a haunting bit of cloud guitar, and immediately you are hit with the pulsing minimalistic tribal rhythms. Tony's bass slides enticingly, Vinny's percussion percolates and the guitar drifts around tantalizing the pallate. Rosemary is based around a guitar loop, and incorporates a melody which lingers in the memory. Nice piano work by Michael on this one. River undualates over a gong loop, and builds with a rapturous lead guitar solo at the end. Behind Stone Walls is centered around a filtered guitar rhythm, and Tony and Vinny jumping all over it at the end. Some slighly outside guitar stuff on there too... Evidence is built around a synth pattern, with some fabulous drumming from Vinny and some very nice upright bass from Tony. In Her Memories was originally written on piano over one of the cloud guitar loops, then rearranged on guitar, and finally re-built with piano, this time played by Michael. The Wind at Night is an example of a daily dose of guitarage around here. Odd cloud loop with blasting lead over the top. The title track sums up the whole CD for me. The closer, Friday (later), is a duet with my good friend and former teacher Randy Roos. He took a piece from an unreleased CD of mine and added some beautiful synth textures to make a lush end to this delightful recording. I hope you like it!"
