The First Sunday Mornings is a new series of live organ works performed at the bookstore, cafe, and darkroom, Night Blooms, in Kansas City, MO every Sunday during the month of July in 2017. Each hour-long performance is split into two minimalist halves; drones and tapestries. Drones are static sonic fields and tapestries are repetitive figures and pattern exercises.

Though each week uses the same model of drones and tapestries, the music is completely improvised and utilizes different organ settings and oscillators each week as well as some variation in the tuning of the organ in different just intonations.

The original recordings, direct to cassette, were dubbed on site and sold in an edition of 10 that are now sold out.
