Recorded on various fixed and modular analog gear during a particularly gloomy and rainy winter in Jamestown, Washington 2020.

Having worked over a month without a single day off from my primary occupation as a graphic designer, all of the days started blending together. This music was made as an escape and coping mechanism (something to help my mind pull focus), but ironically ends up being something well suited to listen to while working.

Written and recorded in off hours, piecemeal — the patch would be left on the modular for days, waiting to be picked back up again. By the nature of analog modular, when I would go back to it there were tiny differences. There’s always differences. And you can’t go back; what has been recorded is all there is, even with patch notes you can’t get back to where you were. So you just continue, find the pulse, find the pattern and let that guide the process. Sometimes it’s seamless, other times you can hear that a day or more has passed. Time became a theme for this recording as the entire release uses a time-offset composition technique where notes will play, the come back delayed at various rates, which end up creating countermelodies. So this mixture of what is now and what was then ends up weaving together into melodic strands held in place by a clock. Pattern exploration and manipulation — natural cycles of starting slowly then a flurry of activity all leading to the eventual wind down. The work is palindromic in its nature. Complexity emerging from simplicity, and collapsing back on itself, Ouroboros like.
