about

"Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. It can be described as an emptiness, like someone (e.g., one's children, parents, sibling, grandparents, friends, pets) or something (e.g., places, things one used to do in childhood, or other activities performed in the past) that should be there in a particular moment is missing, and the individual feels this absence. It brings sad and happy feelings altogether, sadness for missing and happiness for having experienced the feeling."

This is everything I've made that didn't belong in an album. A lot of these are bad, some are worse, several are okay. "Saudade" is an auditory record of the last 3-5 years of my life. Each song is its own feeling, concept, problem, solution, trauma, pleasure, joke, etc.

It is not cohesive, meaningful, continuous, complete, articulate, or deliberate.

about

Somner California

I'm a guy that makes sounds. None of what I make is designed to be popular, dance-able, or even listen- able.

I make music to process bits and pieces of my life, or to emulate certain moods--both the mundane and the meaningful.

All I can hope for is that someone who needs it can find something to relate or connect to in my music, and it comforts them the way it does for me when making it.
