about

Praxis..”the application or use of knowledge or skills; practice, as distinguished from theory.”

For me, the above is true. It was about time I recorded my ideas... so, here are some of them.. I hope you enjoy the journey.

When I was laying out the concept of Praxis I used the following as a loose narratives to glue the musical journey together.. maybe this will help?

The story goes that, somewhere a long time ago a group of Viking explorers set sail from their home. After many months at sea they encounter a storm which leaves them beached on a distant shore. To survive they are forced to explore the inland jungle. They discover an ancient temple which is central to a strange ancient race. They are welcomed, and by tradition helped by their new friends. They are taught the way of the land and gain an inner peace. Our explorers settle for a while and live in much peace and contentment. Some however, yearn to return to their loved ones. Their beached ship is repaired, and with their new knowledge much improved. They set sail for home. Finally they return to their home harbour. Those that return have gained much knowledge and proceed to teach their families and brethren in the ways of the ancient race they encountered in their incredible journey.

Well.. that’s one idea... you can always make up your own story.

All tunes are written, played, programmed recorded and mastered by myself. Art by me..

Finally, I would like to specially thank Adrian Powell for his advice and drumming skills in sorting out my ridiculous rhythm playing in the “Storm.” Cheer Adrian! Without you “Storm” would not have worked!

.. and special thanks to Sid the Seagull.

If you have the time.. try and listen to the whole journey, the album is made up of instrumantal pieces are linked together by ambient sounds depicting a place or event... enjoy the journey!

Note: If you play the album from this web-page you will experience small gaps between each track. When the album is downloaded and played in a media player on a computer (or burnt to a CD and played on a CD player) then the album will play exactly as intended as one continuous piece. i.e. the tracks will flow smoothly with no gaps. If you want to download the album and put all the songs into your iTunes (or similar,) or maybe a portable player, make sure that you check that the playback system is set to 'no gaps' in between songs, then the album will play as one continuous piece. Check you player for more help.

Thanks
