What Remains is dedicated to the memory of Matthew Sperry - a good friends and an extraordinary musician. Matthew's recorded improvisations on contrabass were integral to this project, both as an inspiration and as musical material. Short samples of his recorded work were processed and re-composed to create the sonic landscape with which the fretless guitar part interacts. I have had the opportunity to perform this work live several times all over the world, and each time the experience gives me a sense of joy and peace. I want to thank Matthew for this gift, and I hope that What Remains appropriately expresses the deep admiration I have for his work. Thank you Matthew. We all miss you very much.
