The joyous occasion to bring together musicians.

Toward the end of August 2012, the glass tables (Tomas Bouda, myself), composer Chris Reiche of Victoria BC and vocalist Larissa Mason of Ottawa ON gathered at the Reiche Family Lodge to write and record four new tracks.

The Lodge is situated on 750 acres of wooded area surrounding Little Swawell Lake just outside Pembroke ON . It is a perfect place for quiet morning swims, nightly marshmallow roasts, venison and fish dinners, and music making day and night.

Run on solar power and making use of compostable toilets, the lodge is a window into another world.

I love it there.

pianos, keyboards, accordions, flutes, percussion instruments, guitars and voices guide our exploration of the space, the isolation, the season (and how it turns). We created four pieces. Here are the titles:

We have arrived. And there are cabins to sleep in.

The sun is strong here

Prepared and ready. The recording space.

Tall ceilings for sound travel. And friends.

A last look.

With the generous support of FACTOR, the four tracks will be released as an EP soon.


I look forward to sharing that with you.

Back in the city. Chris Reiche joined the glass tables at Somewhere There, Toronto ON August 31st, 2012 to perform as part of the Leftover Daylight series. You can view the video of the performance here.

Special thank you to Pam Lambert and Ron Reiche for the use of the Reiche Lodge.

Back to living in the city.

Deep breath.

It is the season of love songs.

To celebrate, Tom and I (duo project: the glass tables) wrote and recorded a love song for CBC’s Valentine’s Love Song Contest.

We are enjoying the combined sound of the vibratos belonging to the Fender Rhodes and the Magnatone tube amp (circa 1958). Through the Magnatone, Tom is playing his recently fixed up Gibson E335, and it has a beautiful sound.

Please enjoy Light Love by the glass tables

enjoy in love’s joy.

Happy Valentine’s Day.
