PENDULUM - from the album spearmint lake



in June 1992
I received a grant to visit a fly in lake
50 km northeast of Chapleau Ontario
for 3 weeks

In August I arrived w/a whack of gear
and a rather loose agenda - my mission
to write & record an album of music

It was a blast











recommended listening: volume up, 
good headphones after dark - it's a long-throw 
and all very slow

1993 - 2023
