The Meteor Series
The meteor series came from sonic experimentation in a home studio back in 2006. Taylor Bray and I played with some sounds we had after recording the song Apartment on “Long Division.” The result was said to sound like a meteor shower, so we titled the track The Perseids, The Geminids, The Heavens Have Come Down and Intend to Dwell Among Us. In 2011, we wanted to return to this theme, dedicating a series of albums to various meteor showers. The research lead us through constellations, mythology, biography, science, and history. We thought about different ways to approach song writing, including different recording techniques, synth voices, and guitar effects. This is the result.

The Geminids
The Geminids meteor shower happens each December, and is one of the most active, and increasingly active, meteor showers. The Earth passes through a trail of dust left by asteroid 3200 Phaethon. It is one of the rare meteor showers that results from an asteroid rather than a comet, such as the Perseids which result from the Swift-Tuttle comet. It is named “The Geminids” because the constellation Gemini, or The Twins, is the location in the sky from which the meteors seem to be originating.

The theme of “The Geminids” is that we are complex beings in a complex world, often facing or even creating what seems to be duality. This can be both a source of beauty and tension in our lives.
