This recording, Matt Mitchell's first official solo recording, is one possible answer to several simultaneously considered conundrums and notions: balancing improvisation and composition. reconciling 'musical' gestures with those that challenge such notions of music. relationships between different temporal fragments and the worlds upon which they impinge. potential compatibility of disparate types of sonic material. relationships between the 'organic' and 'inorganic' within form. finding something existing seemingly of its own accord. and moreover, how to accomplish this alone?
released November 1, 2006
Recordings were made late November 2005, and were immediately dealt with. In October 2006, the materials were dealt with further. Everything happened at home in Philadelphia.
