O, Coronis, You fair and cursed one, Whose beauty caught Apollo’s eye And thus you were undone. Mother of Asclepius Who comforts all men’s ills. But you untimely met your end By the immortal’s will. White raven Set upon your door By a jealous lover To watch o’er all you do In your womb The child of a god takes form But your heart did wander And your love did not stay true. You pleaded With the bird to hold its tongue Hide your indiscretions From Zeus’ golden son. But he stayed loyal to his lord’s command And told him that you’d given A mortal man your hand Apollo flew into a rage, His harp fell from his hands. He cursed the bird and turned it black And then he killed your man. Then he drew a golden arrow And from his bow it flew, In a flash of godly vengeance, Your lover murdered you. The fog of rage subsided and the god saw what he’d done Dying in a pool of blood lay his beloved one. And as you felt the life flow out, you looked him in the eye And said “My death may be deserved but Must the baby die?” In his grief Apollo tried to fix the harm he’d done, He called upon his healing powers to save you and your son. But even an Immortal can’t undo the Fates’ decrees And you gave up your spirit to the shade of dark Hades. Apollo built a funeral pyre, then reached into your womb And freed the infant god before your body was consumed. Thus, tragic Coronis, your child did make it through And brought the world such healing as the fates denied to you.

about

In the early months of 2020, I watched the cases of a mysterious new coronavirus spread across the globe with growing anxiety. Like most of the world, I was worried about what was coming but could not have predicted the wild journey that we were all collectively about to undertake.

Over the next two years, everything changed on a global scale, and those transformations came rapidly and unpredictably. Millions of people died, all of the world’s economies were disrupted, terrifying consolidations of political power took place, and massive civil unrest erupted in many different countries.

Personally, the pandemic felt like an utterly unpredictable wheel, continually turning out new horrors and sometimes new hopes. And as much as there were truly heartbreaking and terrifying periods during the pandemic, there were also sublime moments of beauty and meaning. This record is the result of my attempts to capture that experience in music.

Like the seasons of the pandemic itself, each track brings a totally new experience, both stylistically and thematically.

Each also has a unique piece of artwork, many of which involve collaboration between myself and the MidJourney bot, an artificial intelligence that can generate art from verbal prompts.
