The series began as a reaction to the current “American Primitive” guitar scene embodied by such artists as Glenn Jones, Daniel Bachman and Jack Rose.

Compulsion is defined as: a very strong feeling of wanting to do something repeatedly that is difficult to control.

The whole of 2016 I would sit one day a month tabula rasa. Tune my guitar to a slightly unfamiliar open tuning and meditate on sound. The first months were frustrated by the stopping for “mistakes”.
Further momentum of subsequent sessions began to propel the improvisations into more meditative states and judgement was suspended.

The result is a year long sound journal that played from end to end would fill the waking hours of a day. A year of my life’s journey through the seasons. An invocation to the spirit forces of the cosmos to embrace the transitory and the infinite.
