It is difficult to play creatively for almost 9 minutes and to be dedicated to create multiple improvised lines that fit perfectly with no drum support and Eric does it with Love and Class. I have no idea what a “Skimming Stove” is!!! I looked into it and as I started playing I became entrenched in a 3 step process of “skimming” food which led to creating 3 tracks to capture my reaction to that process: Skimming Stove: 1st Slowly Simmer Skimming Stove: ...

Owwhh Then, how can I thank you! This is really beautiful !! I am not only honhered you has made this trilogy, but I am also glad that you have made beautiful music from it.
About the title; It is also part of the creation process. Mostly titles come in through words that go over my head during that period. It can be demonstrable or more abstract. This specific comes from the name of the color of the paint I worked with (I am a painter / carpenter); Skimming Stone. altered stone in stove. The translation in Dutch looks nice and a bit absurd. titles also serve as a beacon in time for me. When I listen to this track, I know in what time it happened; When I painted with Skimming stone; haha ....

Itocpogo WOW!!! mWhen I i was researching I did see references to skimming stone but "cooking" dominated the information. I was so deep into your playing here and immersed in it so much 9 minutes went by so fast. Alex and Rene's adds were totally Incredible and proves how inspiring your creations are!!! THANKS!!! +0
