This music was originally composed late 1994/early 1995 and recorded on computer, which in those days led to a mixdown on a good ol’ fashioned cassette tape. In 2005, using updated software, I re-recorded the entire album again from scratch. Below is a remixed and remastered 2017 version, with some occasional different touches and minor additions, the product of meticulous work over the last few weeks. The album is best described as a fusion of classical, techno, jazz, funk, afro-cuban, and middle eastern music. Thematically, as the title “pilgrim” suggests, it represents a journey through music styles and my own journey through life. I’m very proud of many of these songs and even sometimes astounded that I was able to create them.
