The Panoramic project would not exist in its current incarnation but for the fantastic flutes by Lauren Coonfield (L), junior high band director extraordinaire and Max's cousin to boot. Her talent is most evident in "LPG," a song named by her initials (or her pre-marriage initials, as the case may be). Her lick on "Shards" is just what the song needs, and her solo on "112" is the perfect compliment to the guitar solo later in the track. But perhaps the highlight of the whole album is "LPG (reprise)," a particularly haunting number made so courtesy of some reverb and some Lauren.
Meanwhile, freelance percussionist Jason D. Adams, who doubles as a music technology and production whiz, served as Max's "go to" for solutions to issues that arose throughout the project. He also contributed his percussion tracks on "Sleepless," which include a live ride cymbal sample as well as a pair of electronic drum tracks.
