Pared down to the work essentials. As I write this from the office at Mothercrow House, I look out upon a stainless steel work table. On it sits the Mac, Time Capsule, Blue Yeti microphone, Harman Kardon Soundsticks, universal dock with iPhone, and rosewood incense burner from India. In the room is the M-Audio Pro Key 88 , several music stands, and a red tractor stool from Ikea. Enjoying working on the AEAEA project, some background vocals for Michael Gira’s new Swans album, and other exciting guest projects. Doing my best to feel strong and optimistic. I have no choice, really. Survival is not enough. It must be to flourish.
