about

The title "A Wider View" reflects a dual purpose.

First, this an eclectic and diverse collection that encompasses and expands upon all genres of instrumental music that the Gateless Gate has created since 2012: progressive rock, psychedelic pop, post-rock, ambient, new age, and Krautrock/kosmische.

Second, as the album cover indicates, the music suggests we take a wide-screen view of the beauty of our home and consider how lucky we are to live here...to live at all on this wonderful, (currently) habitable planet.

Track 4 is dedicated to conservationist and broadcaster David Attenborough because I grew up watching his nature programs and continue to do so. He has done as much as anyone to foster a love of the Earth and the life on it in people like me over several decades.
