"During the period I worked the most on these, summer 2018, I was reading the Daoist Zhuangzi and some Stoics. That material is likely why this CD has to do with detachment and inaction, as well as unspecifiable emotions. The synthetic/concrete sound relationship seems post facto to engage with the above. Inside and outside interpenetrate and relate in tension – openness, suffering, trouvailles and surprises of sound and feeling. The composition involved many layers of mixes, seemingly to do with the fact I'd been looking at a ton of digital imaging of manuscript palimpsests." - Jack Patterson
