And here’s a full description of the project:

Aaron, an electronic composer and Matthew, a classically trained pianist, are recovering technology executives and expats living in Seattle who found themselves at a personal and professional turning point. The artists met at a high profile software startup in 2012 but soon left and began improvising and recording. What came together as performance of a sprawling new sound blending piano and spontaneous electronic compositions in Transitions Seattle, an album about life at a crossroads. It’s a mood-scape that explores the movement from one moment to the next, the distance between one and zero, and the constant nature of transition. The album has an altostratus pace and flow, from tracks leading you from quiet breaststrokes on piano keys into the wild thumps of ambient rhythms that unnerve and disarm. Field recordings flow in and out bringing community to the recordings. It all begins with the quiet moodiness inherent in change itself, but creates the space to wander, dream, and contemplate.
