Released July of 2009. A haunting compilation of folk, classical, and original tunes on unaccompanied Touch Guitar, no overdubs, this is the way the ax sounds live basically.

Eric's Second Release, True Light v.1, the Bootleg Edition, will be available mid summer 2014. There is a special preview of the title song True Light here. As a bonus cut, Eric is planning on one track where he'll accompany himself on the touch guitar while singing; the initial idea is to perform the tenor aria from the Pearl Fishers, Je crois entendre encore, a real tenorial tour de force and pretty much custom built for the touch guitar as well.

Eric plans to release one CD per year, and will always preview some of the pieces on this very site, under the soundfiles tab.
