Topography is the soundtrack for "Not of This World", the latest film in the True Beauty series featuring Lisa Chan, created by Flannel. Songs from Topography are also featured in films by Bradley Productions.
If you watch the film, there are beautiful images of a hot air balloon ride, so I took that feeling of being up in the air, looking down at the world as inspiration for these songs.


released May 8, 2013

Thanks to Joel from Flannel for guidance during the composition process, Stuart from Sound Post for working his magic making everything sound so nice, and of course my lovely wife Tina for putting up with the ups & downs of me going through the creative process!
