In a recent interview with Visual Atelier 8, Gregory Ackerman spoke about how he feels when he listens to music. “When I’m listening to music, I am transported to a complete new world within my own self, within my own brain, where I find the center of all things. It’s a place where nothing really matters, and the chaos, the uncertainties of reality melt away into rhythm and melody. It’s a place where everything make sense, where ideas can come together and interact, a place that invites play and wonder and inspires unabashed. To me, there is no feeling better than putting on an album in my headphones and giving my whole self to music, letting it run completely through my body, listening to every note and every slip of the finger. It’s amazing really, and the only sensory comparison is watching the sun slip away over the horizon on a warm summer’s night surrounded by the people and things you love.” That’s defintely an apt desciption of the music Ackerman created for Still Waiting Still, his new album at radio now.
