For my daughter, Claire, whose playing and exploring in the recording studio inspired much of this work.
This album was recorded, mixed and mastered in high resolution audio with numerous subtleties. The mix of each piece will sound different from system to system due to the full scope of frequencies captured during the recording process. The decision was made early on to protect the integrity of the dynamics and subtleties contained within the mix. Therefore, mastering was treated minimally and volume should be considered as one would consider salt. Add to taste. In other words, if you need it louder, turn it up.
