Xochimilco, a lake just south of Mexico City, is the last frontier for wild axolotls and a place where floating gardens have driven commerce for generations. This singular scene is the setting for the piece of music that closes this mini album. Other lyrical touchstones include Jim Henson's final moments on earth, sibling rivalry, moments of forgotten extraordinary reality and jealousy of others' spiritual experiences. "A Place Where Flowers Grow" was created pretty much by myself in an unhurried state. Set against a backdrop of analog sequences, bubbling arpeggiators, drum machines, acoustic percussion, and layers of classic hardware synths; these songs are meant to blur the line between pleasurable escapism and emotional urgency. I hope they take you somewhere that makes you think and feel about here and now.
