Birds, creeks, thunder -- nature sounds have always been important among Steve Targo’s Inner Travels releases. Targo often uses synthesizers to replicate wildlife songs in his music, framed with his own field recordings. On Nature Spirit, the tenth Inner Travels full-length, he pays more attention to the world outside his window and less to the electronics.
The sounds of the environment are as much “songs” as the three musical works on the album. They unfold in the style of most Inner Travels music -- no beginning, no end, each layer of texture revealing more and more with each listen. Those layers were engineered into the environmental passages of Nature Spirit. Targo mixed different tracks from his own library of field recordings.
The intent behind Nature Spirit is the same as it was for the other Inner Travels albums -- to create music that brings peace to its listeners. In a world that rushes people along, Nature Spirit slows life down so that everything can be appreciated and enjoyed.

All music & nature recordings by Steve Targo.
Music recorded 2017-2018 at home.
Nature recordings 2015-2018.
Art by Sean Conrad.
Deepest thanks to Sean, Jason C, Karen,
