Under the Mountain, An Offering of Flowers is a sonic collage of my time in Indonesia during the winter of 2018. Trimmed down from 15hrs of recordings into a 30 min mixtape of my favorite moments, comprised of field recordings, live concerts, radio rips, stall finds and other aural discoveries.

Featuring Gamelan Genggong , Balinese Gamelan, Rindik, Suling (flute), Gender Wayang, Suharto era psychrock, ceremonial cremation music, Kecak, the Bali Sea, and other sonic delicasies, all filtered through a haze of echo.

Much gratitude to all the wonderful people we met on our travels, looking forward to many returns. Gamelan music is truly a wondrous gift, I hope this brief collection might lead you towards deeper exploration.


released April 29, 2019

Recorded/Captured Feb-March 2018 in Indonesia. Mixed at Thump Studios in BK, NY Winter of 2019.
