All of these tracks (other than Lichter and Into the Trees) were written and posted by Dirk Maassen as open collaborations on Soundcloud. In response to these postings I could not resist adding some ambient guitar textures.
In regard to Lichter, this began as an ambient guitar track which I sent to Dirk and from which he added his beautiful piano melody.
Into the Trees was written and recorded by Dirk Maassen before he kindly asked me to add some guitar textures. I was and remain very honoured to have been asked to collaborate with him on this beautiful track.
Dirk has kindly given me permission to release all of these tracks together on this EP.
On reflecting upon these pieces it has been an absolute pleasure for me to meet and work with Dirk. I recommend you visit his web site and give more of his wonderful compositions a listen.
I hope that you enjoy the results of our collaborations and that there will be more releases in the future....
