“HODGE PODGE”, as it’s name would imply, is a collection of tracks which have (at first appearance) very little in common. However, the tracks of this album are in fact held together by a common theme, that of total harmonic derangement. These xenharmonic pieces represent my own attempt to explore the vast space of alternative tuning systems. As such, each track represents a demonstration of the unique properties and utilities offered by it’s associated tuning system.

Moreover, this album was composed during the course of the global COVID-19 outbreak, and consequentially also documents my attempts to maintain my own sanity during the quarantine. These tracks serve to crystallize and preserve the dark, paranoid, and perpetually isolated milieu which permeated Prague and my heart through the early months of 2020.
