about

Originally released on Sedimental as sedcd049.
Composed 2003 – 2006, released 2007.

An album of jagged sounds, abrupt breaks, propulsive tempos, sudden pauses, re-use of scraps, digital distortion, spun speakers, banned fades, improvisation, live recordings as raw material, multiple exchanges. Sound as the scent of perfume left in a space after a person exits.

Sources include upright bass, plucked piano, sine tones, wine glasses, leaves, grass, bowed metal, stairwell railing, blown organ pipe, voice, jaw harp, drums, church organ, and field recordings of a plaza in Boston MA, a canoe in water, a refrigerator, fireworks, a straw broom, galleries and lobbies of the Met, a windmill in Maribor Slovenia, a train station in Limoge France.

"...a shapeliness that’s unusual in abstract music of this kind...a hugely satisfying piece of work" - Brian Marley, The Wire

"Seldom is music in this idiom so warm, personable, imaginative and lively." - Jason Bivins, Signal To Noise
