The term "pong" i came across in a conversation I had about Kung Fu. It refers to the state of balance, relaxation and complete chi flow that one must remain in during a fight. The objective being to get your opponent out of his 'Pong'.
This release is a journey of myself discovering where my Pong was within my music composition. No specific ideas, or concepts were explored during the making of these tunes. They are simply the result of play, experimentation and a very close relationship with my own picky taste for clarity and harmonic pleasure.
It was during this time that I accumulated the most experience in my career so far. This was the accumulation of all the building blocks and materials I needed to transform my imagination into Epic sound.
