about

'As a child I was always fascinated by sunsets, twilight, dusk (and still remain so to this day) - partially from its own beauty, but also in anticipation of the the darkness that immediately followed which was possibly my favorite time (hence - "Obscura", which is Latin for "darkness"). I would often gaze almost hypnotized from the upstairs window of my parent's bedroom, at the colorful view across the city rooftops as the sun began its dive, to ultimately vanish behind the pinpoint red lights of the radio towers on the horizon miles away. I shot countless photographs of the image, every time attempting to capture the "perfect" one; the album's front cover photo is one of these, taken in 1978.

"Obscura" is inspired by these images, as an attempt to create what might've been my personal "soundtrack" as I stood alone watching from a darkened room.'
