This album is a collage of recordings and sound treatments. We had two very fruitful days in the Ramshorn Theatre (thanks Gerry Rossi!) where we recorded several improvisations with minimal or no discussion. After some time, we listened to the recordings and chose our favourite tracks to provide the basis for another layer of improvising, again with the briefest of chats beforehand.

We intended to capture the experience of being in different psychological states such as disconnection and nostalgia in 'a different kind of everyday'.
'wintermoon' takes the open remoteness of the Hoy coast and the North Sea as inspiration.
'a whole other vibe' depicts the feeling of how it felt to walk home from the CCA on a frosty night after a GIOfest gig. Playing music and being with your friends combine to bring another kind of consciousness where you see and hear your city as a new place. Thinking about how light may sound after many miles of travelling,
'sparkle' is an imagining on what starlight sounds like after centuries and many miles have passed.
[Una MacGlone]
