Songs for Our Mother

Bird Sings
Frog Sings
Beach Walks
Butterfly Flutters By
Even Moss Sings

Night Song
Cloud Song
Rain Dance
River Ditty
Waiting for Now

This not a poem.
It is the track list for
my new CD,
Songs for Our Mother.

This album explores the common textures between nature and the spontaneous music of indigenous instruments. Featuring eleven spontaneous compositions for Native American flute and kalimba enhanced with Theremini and computer generated soundscapes, these tracks utilize an interesting blend of what on first glance may appear as incongruous elements to create an amazing interweaving of lush sonic layers in celebration of the connection between Mother Earth and human artifice.   Please enjoy a full listen for free and let me know what you think. If you would like to add this music to your own collection, you may buy the digital release for $15 or join my subscription community (for $15/ year) to receive unlimited  access to over 70 tracks of my psychoactive music.

Alone Is My Home (Leave Me Alone) by Mad Dog Friedman & Bruce Deleplain

Alone Is My Home (Leave Me Alone) by Mad Dog Friedman & Bruce Deleplain is a song written to raise awareness about Boulder's City Council recent actions to eradicate the homeless presence in downtown Boulder. Any of us are but one or two tragic life events from needing each others' help. Please use this thread to discuss more than just the music here. This is about being human and taking care of each other.

Hide & Seek

It took over a month for Isatella & the Master of the Silver Catfish to emerge from their boreal surroundings so I am calling this one "Hide & Seek." Perhaps my most whimsical watercolor yet...

Symphony of the Heart

Just released (as in 5 minutes ago) my most ambitious solo Theremini project to date: the Symphony of the Heart, 37 minutes of spontaneous compositions in six movements. For me it is next to miraculous to be able to paint these rich polyphonic landscapes in a series of single solo recording sessions simply by waving my arms around. Thank you for all your support and encouragement. Sometimes I wonder about myself.

Drones for Peace Launch

It's done. 17 tracks and over an hour of pure Theremini bliss. Not like anything I have ever done.  Not sure who might like this. Not sure why I am releasing this. Ultimately I feel if you resonate with it, I would be be happy to give it to you, it is all about connection and healing, so just message me on Facebook at and I will send you a free download code.
