the terms music and sound are often interchanged but is there a difference? the obvious answer would be that music needs to be musical or created using a musical instrument. however, sounds surround us at all times and all sound is in its own way music. a duet of bird song and freight train is just as much a spontaneous composition as two musicians improvising together. this album sought to bring together a variety of sounds ranging from man made to those in nature.

mirror sounds. you are coming, going. stretch ready made. markarian birdsong. bowed waves. schumann resonance voicings skittering in a sphere of air.
