about

They emerged after the dust settled. They evolved in half light. This music set its self free when there was no music asked to come. It arrived unannounced, speckled in bespoke glistening dusk air, enchanting till dawns fragrant soft light breaches, and away again on a whisper till calmer pursuits pertain and sanity settles all around.

Track Name: NOT DISSIMILAR
We are reminded; this is what we originally fell in love with.
This is the intimate.

Track Name: INTERRUPTION OF AWARENESS
When writing, rehearsing and recording with a band there is considerable down time. During this time self indulgent escapist’s pursuits are the main stay to keeping sane. There can be so much adrenaline, elation and ecstasy then suddenly nothing, a void that permeates, a cold sweat, like a hangover in the afternoon.

It is during this time this music was made.

... this is no more than a gate house, hunters lodge perhaps as we are so far off the road. Closer to the lake. Close to deep in the woods...
Track Name: SOMETHING IN THE NIGHT / LANGSAM HERAUSGESTELLT
& I MISS YOU MORE THAN IF I EVER MET YOU . . .

... village in walking distance, cycle anywhere else. Inexpensive full bodied local wine, freshly baked baguettes and hummus to sustain till meal time. Good company, pleasant chats, considered pronouncements, witty retorts, rude jokes and the compulsory meanderings and sustained tangents over dinner spilling into desert and smokes. Throw another log on.
Track Name: DESTINÉ À SATISFAIRE LES ASPIRATIONS ÉLEVÉES ET DONC DIFFICILE À ATTEINDRE / ZUM TOD ZU ERREICHEN
“One cannot say of something that it is and that it is not in the same respect and at the same time.” Aristotle

"It is, and it is not, in the same respect, AND at the same time."

High Octane, Million Dollar Caliber, Gold Cased, Diamond Tipped, Star Studded Suicide...

The sounds were ethereal and juxtaposed, not just to each other, but even to themselves. Harsh becoming gentle without ever losing its edge, calm whispered languid pads soared like cigarette smoke but on a scale of Jupiter, then dissolved in to polyrhythmic tones like children’s fingertips playing keys of marshmallow. Of the random sound files and patches I started to make a collage. I followed templates and used the same old software. Magic emerged.

I AM THE SHIT
Track Name: DAY AT THE CIRCUS VII XLII XXIII
"...a prosopopoeia hurdy gurdy plays a Circus Screamer through the démodé tannoy. The wires vibrate and the suspended coloured bulbs, all faded and rain filled, rattle and sway in the eerie gloom, their light wains as the music swells, soaking each other’s power, exchanging light for sound and so on and so forth, like the exhausted trying to resituate the fatigued and collapsed, open mouth and breathless, gasping and drooling into vacuous chasms of belch and halitosis and the rest. It is still in the am…"

Track Name: ZWANG ZWANG VII XLII XXIII
I suggested they play it over and over and on, let it slide, just let it go... they let it go alright...
