***ALBUM DL INCLUDES BONUS PDF BOOKLET WITH ARTWORK AND RELEASE INFO***

Twelve solo piano studies for background listening
Follows on from the 2015 download album ‘Death, Ritual & Resonation’, which, in effect, was the funeral of the guitarist...
That guitarist is now a ghost... and seems to be playing a piano, the instrument he last used exclusively on ‘Piano Sketches 1973-84’, the vinyl only album released in 1984...
‘Ghost Music’ is created as background
music – like distant wind chimes... But it comes towards you, the ear drawing in, becoming mid- field music...
And then, as one starts to appreciate the overtones, ambient noises and piano mechanics, it ends up as near- field music...
Music that will haunt you.
For after several plays, you will start imaging you’re hearing it in the background. But it’s not playing....
And, believe it or not, cats really like it too! In fact, if you listen closely to track one, you can hear Patsy, the studio cat approaching the
piano with a lovely purr...
Also, each theme has a hidden Morse code message..!
