Product Notes

Deer Tracks (for solo mandolin) is my collective title for a number of short solo mandolin pieces that I have been writing since 2002. Just across the Upper Iowa River from my neighborhood in Decorah are some beautiful bluffs laced with man-made hiking and bike trails. Running between these human trails is a complex network of animals-only pathways. At some point I began to think of these slightly odd mandolin pieces as being my own deer tracks; music slightly off my own well-worn musical paths. I spent a week in Fredericton, New Brunswick in August of 2002 attending a conference. Most evenings I was free to take long walks and write music. I had been listening to Marilyn Crispell's beautiful CD, Amaryllis, recorded with Gary Peacock and Paul Motian and while I loved the performances I was equally moved by the short, seemingly simple, compositions. These pieces inspired me to feel more free to write shorter pieces of my own. Sitting in my room at the Lord Beaverbrook Hotel, with mandolin in hand, I began to intentionally try to capture that feeling of freedom on paper. This collection of 21 Deer Tracks begins with the short piece I wrote on Sunday, August 18, 2002, continues with the one I started the next day (here titled "August 2002"), and ends with the piece that I wrote on July 8, 2013. Between August 2002 and now (September 2013) I have written over 50 pieces that fall into the Deer Tracks category. The compositions on this CD are the ones that I chose to record in August of 2013 as part of the Kickstarter project I launched in May 2013. The generous and inspiring support of my Kickstarter supporters led directly to the creation of this CD and over 20 new Deer Tracks pieces (five of these directly commissioned by Kickstarter supporters).
