Niagara by KL Sealegs
A little over a year ago, I was made aware of my music being played on the radio station CFRC in Kingston, Ontario. The DJ responsible for programming my music was the enigmatic KL Sealegs on her experimental/electronic program called Below The Decks.
I contacted her, expressing my thanks for airplay and started listening to her program regularly via the online archives.
A few months later, she modestly (and apologetically) played one of her own compositions "Train" on the show. I asked if she would be willing to collect her soundworks into a compilation album for release on Happy Puppy, and what you have here is the result.
You can listen to her program Below The Decks at the CFRC website, follow her on tumblr and hear more music from her group Fire Moss (who just released a new album October 2014).
A companion album of music written exclusively for Below The Decks is also available as a fundraiser for CFRC Radio:
