    I took the photo for the album cover while patchskiing at Forestdale Divide last month.
    Yes, that is Penny behind me on the snow.

    I'll post some links below.
    Please listen, feel free to share, and of course download. I'll have a CD version coming out early next month.

    Thanks for sharing. That's a lot of tracks. I cicked through a few of the youtubes last night on my phone. Some fun sounding stuff in there. I can see it being a soundtrack or something.

    Is that all you on some sort of organ or synth or something or other instruments/players too?

    Thank you. All the tracks were created using GarageBand. I played all of the "instruments" myself using three different types of keyboards. On most tracks I used my actual computer's QWERTY keyboard. I only recently added a two-octave CME Xkey and a four-octave M-Audio Key Studio. I played all of the "drum" parts with the exception of part of a couple of tracks, where I used some of the drum loops GarageBand provides.
    I'm thrilled that you heard soundtracks when listening. That is exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks again.

    Trail Ride
    This started as a drive toward rockabilly that shifted into sort of a “Western Twang” sound. I’m pretty happy and take pride in the guitar sounds I was able to achieve on a computer keyboard.
    Instrumentation – Drums. Upright Bass, Clavinet, Guitars

    Today’s Track from Soundtracks In Search Of A Film is definitely snow and ski related.

    Zarameyuki Cycles

    Zarameyuki is the Japanese word for “corn snow.” Corn snow is my second favorite type of snow to ski, with fresh powder being my favorite. For corn snow to develop there needs to be cycles of melting and freezing of snow which often occurs in the spring. This song goes through three sections or cycles representing the early morning freeze followed by a melt or thaw and then ends with a refreeze or setup in the evening.

    Instrumentation – Synthesizers, Orchestral Kit, Harp, Marimbas, Orchestral Choir Voices, Upright Bass
