Some Sort of Wave Portal is a phrase I found in my movie ideas notepad. It seemed fitting when reconsidered as a title, as I was feeling the wave connection in both the auditory & the oceanic sense of the word. Surfing and synthesis are two very important practices in my life, and both open a wonderfully meditative portal that I can easily lose myself in. They are both grounding, energizing and inspiring.
Tunnels, Mentor, Coast Quest were recorded in real time to cassette with a small modular synthesizer, Roland RE-201 Space Echo and Teenage Engineering OP-1.
Spring was recorded multi-track with a Korg Mono/Poly.
