Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Co. is one of my favorite electronic ensembles of all time, and were the first of their kind. They worked extensively with the late synth pioneer Bob Moog, who made some synths specifically for them back in the late 60's and early 70"s.

When I reached out to MMPMC founders David Borden & Steve Drews (who I've become friends with) and forwarded some of my stuff, they both remarked that it reminded them of their early work - remarkable, considering the stuff I gave them was composed and recorded long before I ever discovered their music through Pandora radio.

Since then, I have been integrating them as a sonic informer on some of the pieces I've written. In addition to putting this previously-unreleased material out there, it will soon be part of future downloads of the appropriately titled album, "Homage."
