Sky Songs is a free download ( or pay what you want) only collection of electronic music recorded solely in-flight on several of the many that I took in 2016. In keeping with my usual aesthetic of 'cheap and small and portable as possible' I used a Samsung 7 inch tablet running two or three music apps (downloaded for free) and a Zoom portable recorder to do the job. What you hear is what I heard and hopefully my fellow passengers didn't. The only edits are beginnings and endings of the pieces. They were made using headphones and unless you have a super hi-fi system I recommend listening to them on headphones.

I dont know how long the cover will stay up so get it before they make me take it down :-)

The work is dedicated to Bob Ostertag who's music I have listened to since the release of Fall Mountain in 1979 and to Morton Subotnick who's recording Silver Apples Of The Moon provided me with many samples during my time with The Recedents in the 1980's and 90's and last but by no means last Warren Burt a constant source of inspiration.

Thanks to Lawrence English for help with the cover.
