Even though I'm one of these precious singer/songwriter drips, one of my deep loves is instrumental music.

Truth be told, I actually prefer it to music with lyrics. Mostly because I find lyrics distracting when I'm trying to do something else. If someone's talking to me, telling me something, I'm keen to try and listen.

I feel I owe it to the person to at least pay attention.

Happily, that responsibility is out the window with instrumental music.

You just relax and enjoy the music.

Let it wash over you.

This album goes hand in hand with the Foreground Application V3 album, and also with the recently released, He Is Born.

All three of these albums breathe the same air.

Background Applications V3 is an ambient little world filled with quiet moody contemplation.

Think Brian Eno, John Cage, Daniel Lanois.
