This album was written and recorded from 11/2012-02/2013. It was conceived in the spirit of the limitless joy and epic excitement I felt playing Nintendo games as a child. Those experiences left a lasting impression on me creatively. Additionally, after years of writing lyrics , it was exciting to work on an entirely instrumental album. Thus, "The Missing Animal" was born out of this desire to encapsulate these childhood memories without the use of sung words.
