Press release-

Malibu Fire Sessions at BWCA by Suburbanoid The Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts is pleased to announce the release of Malibu Fire Sessions, a new album by Suburbanoid, and the first worldwide release for the Center’s Beato Records label . When composer Suburbanoid , along with his family, were faced with a mandatory evacuation from where they were living and working in Malibu during the 2018 Woolsey Fire, Kevin Wallace, director of the Center, offered to house them at the art Center. This led to an impromptu artist’s residency. The opportunity to utilize the piano at the Center – a German Steinway custom-made for famed classical pianist Lili Kraus – as well as Wallace’s Korg Synthesizer, led to numerous new compositions.

review of CD release performance

“Awesome multimedia performance. Intimate and meditative, maybe 20 people attending. Ethereal colored light show and TV-size screen showing nature: forest fire, a raven on a branch, small birds in a bird bath, kittens playing. Jim alternately played on a Steinway and two different guitars. One he made sound like a theremin, the other like a Sitar. Toward the end he sang, including in Italian.”   Carol V

Ambient relaxing music



music for meditation and relaxation

Lite Roast is a refreshing blend of uplifting harmony, haunting melody, and deep resonance, blending seamlessly to create an experience that will leave you relaxed and peaceful.
Lite Roast features Jim on guitar with an Ebow, (an electric device that simulates a bow to give the guitar an ethereal sound; allowing it to mimic strings, horns, and woodwinds.) and Bettie on accordion (played in a drone style).
The music was inspired by the beauty of the Ojai valley in southern California; and cultivated during live performances at local markets and Meditation Mount, one of the finest meditation retreats on the western coast. The song, “Ojai Birds”, features the gentle song of morning birds recorded spontaneously one day near the river bottom, in the town of Miner’s Oaks, west of Ojai.

Beloved for relaxation, sound bath/meditation ,

yoga and stress reduction
