The ten-track disc was inspired by a traveler’s diary Hamm found in Italy during the course of his usual road practice of reading a book, leaving it at the hotel library for the next guest, and taking a new book. “Reading this student’s diary and seeing that we were on the same type of quest, in many of the same places, gave me the jumping-off point for the record,” he says. And plunge in he did, with an intimate yet intense album of bass-only 4-string creations that range from romantic ballads and modern-classical meditations to tapped, slapped, and strummed jazz, funk, and noise art. “The duality of the album is that the listener can delve in artistically, or it can be pleasing music to put on in the background.” Hamm turned to crowdsourcing to fund the project, learning a lot along the way.
