A message from co-producer Pat Sansone:

My dear friend Joshua Shapera has only been absent from this material world for four months at the time of writing this. It’s still not easy to find the words that would do him justice…or words for what he taught me, what he brought to my life and to my artistic work, words for the kind of friend he was to me and so many others. I have started and abandoned this tribute dozens of times over the last few weeks. But eventually it occurred to me that I don’t need to say very much… and it is this simple thought that connects the feelings I am processing about the loss of my dear friend… to the memory of the two of us working on the music contained within this album. Josh and I had been producing records together for about five years by the time we came to Max and Edda’s music. We had done good work, built a studio together, and had great times becoming close friends. But when listening to Ocean of Birds, I experience something unique and meaningful regarding him and our work together. It’s in the space. In the quiet stillness inside the music. In those spaces is the care, deep attention to detail, and respect for the simple beauty of the whole that speaks more than I could with my words. The beautiful music and the fascinating words from Max and Edda were different from anything the two of us had produced up to that point, and it gave us the chance to think differently about our role in the creation of a work. To support where we can, and to step back and respect the quiet spaces where we should. To truly listen. I am deeply proud of the work I got to do with Max and Edda on Ocean of Birds, and it is deeply meaningful that I got to share this experience with my dear friend Josh. I will always remember sitting at the mixing desk and looking over to see him visibly moved while listening to Edda’s performance of the opening track, “Crossing Over.” A feeling we both shared in that moment. I hope that you will find your own personal connection to this transcendent music, and that it is as meaningful to you as it was to Josh and me during the making of this record. It’s in the space.

We dedicate this special vinyl release of Ocean Of Birds to our dear friend, Joshua Shapera.

Max Hatt / Edda Glass Seattle, Washington

Hailed as “unique,” “evocative,”“mesmerizing,” “haunting,” “cinematic,” not to mention “elegantly funky,” Max Hatt / Edda Glass is a swoon-inducing soundscape that “creates a vastness within its quiet,” making “one feel both lost and found, all at once.”

“Beautiful… #chills”
