Seldom seen is the saw seared,
Whence the wheel was worn and weeded.
The disheveled did shoulder the shovels,
Yet never was the knife knelled nor kneaded.
Let then the lever lie below the lapsed,
As deadweights darken deftly those deeded.
These lines furrow the track titles of our second album, Paragon's Pendulum, irrigating a durational improvisation sprouted from our first-ever sound session. Let us weave into and out of newly napped textures upon the looms of the piano, the voice, and the laptop, before alighting on a bonus track that harvests these sounds to beckon sheer reveries.
ARBORANCE is the rooting and branching of sonic seedlings cultivated extemporaneously from prepared piano and extended vocals (Susan Kuo) and live electronics (Brian Riordan).
Bonus track was written for film score for Helene's Story, directed by Tatiana Istomina (tatianaistomina.com/helene.html
