These songs were created by drawing in the energies of the card (image) out through the piano (instrument) into the time dimension (framework) of song (music). I consciously chose cards which I felt moved to express, in the order they play out on the album. In this way a storyline is generated in addition to the individual messages of each card. Some songs came to completion on their own time, some were signaled to end when the tarot deck fell off piano deck, and some were interrupted by external interference. The songs came through the piano on 7/22, 23, 24/2019. Each online track features its card placed on an underwater photograph of a coral reef. The album was released on 7/25, the "day out of time" in the Mayan calendar, which ends on 7/24 and starts on 7/26.

Created in collaboration with the Universal Waite and Salvador Dali Universal tarot decks and a slightly out of tune Wellington spinet piano. Recorded with a Tascam DR-05 digital recorder, and amplified with Audacity.
