    The Gamma album contains three loose sections of music - ambient (Tracks 1-7), dance (Tracks 8-14), live recordings of ambient performance (Tracks 15-19). I have described my music as space cowboy, it is the kind of music that I would hope, a planet hopping shuttle pilot of the future may listen to on their portable music player.
    In 2012 I went on a road trip for most of the year and travelled up the eastern sea board of Australia. A big goal of the trip was to produce an album on the road. Part of my process was about being inspired to create tracks based on the environment I was visiting, and not move on from that location till the track was locked away. Applying that kind of discipline was good because it meant I returned from my journey with an album of finished material, rather than a desktop full of half finished bits and pieces.
    I am not much into photographs and did not take a camera with me, instead the Gamma album is my impressionistic sonic record of my journey. When I listen to it, the memories come rushing back through me, in the same way you would get if looking through a photo album. A good example is Track 6 - Cloud Catcher (A Song for Mount Warning). I feel that I have captured the majesty of the mountain that captures the first rays on sunlight on the Australian continent. To me, the song is just as visceral as what any photograph might be.
    Mastering has been done by Left of Elephant Sound, (http://leftofelephantsound.com.au) based in Darwin, Australia. Gamma is the first album that I have had professionally mastered, and the process has been ultimately very fruitful.
    Those that are visting for the first time and are curious about my intergalactic roots, should also check out my Sounds from the Valley album.
