Sea of Tranquility, or Mare Tranquillitatis, is a wide open plain on the Earth-facing side of the moon. It was named in 1651 by Italian astronomers who looked through their telescopes and in the dark expanses saw a calm, flat sea on an alien world.

For Sea of Tranquility, I listened to many hours of old recordings (mainly from 2004-2007) when I was travelling around the U.S. working as a union organizer. Inspiring work, to be sure, but I'd also see the worst sides of people in the way the bosses treated workers. So it could get a little dark, sometimes. Making music was my way of relaxing into a sea of sound after long days of struggle in far-off places.
