A Prelude to Monsters was written concurrently with the writing of a novel by Alicia Adams. Alicia would send me pages of writing and I would write music to it. I would then write music to represent where I felt it should go and she would write to that, then write the next segment.....and so on. This is the first batch of material related to the project.

The album art was originally meant to be an A5 print. The art is by Farah Mohiuddin (www.farahm.com). I hope to issue it as a poster in the not too distant future.

The album was initially released as a limited edition CD by Somehow Recordings (UK) and is now available here through the Drift Theory bandcamp site.
