It's been a pretty odd few days - my dog died, I flew to Scotland, my mum had surgery, I didn't sleep and I'm pretty much all over the place - I had no track for this week and by chance this submission landed right in my lap.
On a whim I had a listen and it's perfect - perfect for me right now - perfect for how I feel and for what I want to write.
Sometimes everything is too much - the input is too great and you need a safe space to run and hide. Unfortunately work and responsibilities don't go away, so you need a soundtrack that will calm you down and get you to reflect on how things are. Not too melancholic, not too sad, just gentle and deep enough to move you.
I love the space in this piece - the room to move around and think in - to write and flow in to just - be me in and let the rest of it drift away.
It might not be for you - but right now - oh God is it for me.
You might want to take it out for a spin...

About the Curator: Andrew McCluskey
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the dark forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top. They would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
Although I've always played, I haven't always been a musician. Most of my twenties were spent working with people, buying and selling and learning how the world works. It was in my thirties that I came to America and focused on music and began to develop music2work2.
