Carl Stone. I attended a clinic where he played some of his music and spoke about his compositional methods, but was too shy to ask any questions myself. Later, that evening, I went to a performance and had my mind blown. It was not like anything I had ever experienced and opened a new door for me musically. To summarize it changed the direction of all music I would make afterwards.
This piece is a reference to his record "Mom's" and, more specifically, the first track on that record.
