If you would like a studio quality recording of the album on CD complete with proper sleeve notes then take a visit to the shop.

Background

As a background, all tracks were recorded between sept. '04 and sept. '05. From this I chose the title morning glory which as you may know is the flower for, you guessed it, September.

During the period spanned by these recordings I re-entered education to work towards a humanities degree so thanks to Brian (phil) and Frank (lit) for the literary and philosophical delights encountered along the way.

Technical

Keyboards: A few, probably the old Evolution played a part
Guitars: Epiphone Les Paul Studio, Martin DR-28H, Columbus 335
Percussion: Tibetan meditation bells and bowls
Natural Sounds: Sony Mini Disc recorder and an excellent microphone
Programming Software: FL Studio 5, Wave Lab, Cool Edit, Cakewalk Guitar Tracks Pro 3, Abelton Live 5, and a few other bits and bobs

Thank You Kindly

No miXile work could take place without the family & friends who help to make it all happen. Also special thanks to Michael for the bells and bowls.
