'Earthling' part of the soundtrack to sci fi tv series 'Brave New World'
'Cycles' is music for taking journeys away from reality: to the inner reaches of your mind, a distant solar system, or a solo hike to Antarctica.
'Cycles' was recorded in New York and Woodstock. Strings, Bluthner Grand Piano and vocals in Beethoven Hall, all synths in Sun Mountain studio, Woodstock.
Historic New York venue Beethoven Hall saw Leon Trotsky give famous addresses then later was a film studio where Raging Bull scenes were shot.
David Baron's Sun Mountain studio hosts his vast collection of synthesisers and vintage keyboards including the very celesta Thelonious Monk played on Brilliant Corners.
