about

------------------------------------------------------------------
*also available for DL as 2 separate releases @ moodyalien.bandcamp.com
------------------------------------------------------------------

"HARM'S BRIGHT SMILE" (#1-3) sprang out of an OuLiPo-inspired exercise on limited sound sources and would have been entirely made out of a 1 minute long harmonica recording, if it wasn't for a human voice, a guitar drone & the resulting snare drum vibration (#2) and a ride cymbal sample (#3).

"CIVILIZATION" (#4) & "IN THE FOREST" (#5-13) contain improvisational sound pieces for peculiar moods and were made out of a large number of instrument, field & miscellaneous recordings.

Track Name: (waiting for) a lull in the noise
"i wasted harm's bright smile
she cast her shadow over milk and brine
cymbals crushed her pollen bloom

my candenscence
all worked up and kindly resonant
filled her gleam, the eye's undertaking
bordered for what it was worth
by gaping fish maws
and the udders of fools

i ran
but the long black fingers of her discontent
scraped at the skin on my face, and face

i wondered, not for the first time
no, marveled
canted fingerstrips of holy fangmarks
streaks across my brow, my arms' lengths' trailings
i wasted harm's bright smile
waiting for a lull in the noise
but ending up curled in the corner of the cathedral of her disdain

wasted harm's bright smile
cymbals snared our pollen bloom"
