This is an album inspired by the quest for something "other"; through art or the spiritual, through peak experiences or paranormal investigations, in the realms of imagination or at large in the world; encounters with the unknown by chance or design.
The following notes owe a fair amount to the 2002 interview with me by David Aftandillan for Ink19 magazine.
DISCLAIMER: If you're the kind of person who doesn't like to know the musician's thoughts on the music or what was behind its creation, don't read these. You won't hurt my feelings, honest.
