This album was originally planned to be something that would fit in with the same herd of sounds from classic European improv labels such as FMP, ICP, and Incus. The final project ended up becoming something else: A lofi journey of not only free-jazz stylings but also that of atmospheric, contemplative intrumentation. Complete with improvised drone loops, of course!
Sean Macintosh (of Tension Collectors, Zebra Pulse, Gary Debussy, etc.) did all the drums in a series of duo takes between our us raving about our love for Han Bennink. Good friend and frequent-collaborator Mustafa Rafiq (aka Family Injera) also sat in for a session on guitar for the piece "Inherited Debt To The Earth".
Recorded between October 2018 and January 2019 in Edmonton, Alberta
Mixed and mastered by Marlon Wolterink at White Noise Studio in Winterswijk, Netherlands
