Millenium Park, 2005

I took these shots a few years ago on a lovely Saturday morning. The group on the lawn was performing some Tai Chi exercises.

Stick This In Your MP3 Player: "Insects" by Woodsman


This track combines the alternative rock soundscape of The Church or Wilderness with modern-day post-rock distortion. It's heavy and mysterious, and reminds me of driving down a dark road at night.

Stick This In Your MP3 Player: "Chimicum Rain" by Linda Perhacs


This blast from the past (1970, to be exact) sounds like a pleasant-enough acoustic folk track, all hushed introspection via voice and guitar, until the chorus, where the singer's overdubbed voice cascades in a shimmering waterfall of sound. Just beautiful.
