Drown In Fog 02:38


Released by Giraffe Tapes:

In the Spring of 2021
we were finally able to travel outside of 5km from home.
To take much needed breaks from being in the city,
my colleague and I would drive to the seaside,
choosing a new beach,
a new town each trip as we were both foreigners in a new city,
observers to the landscape.
Walking and listening,
we would take in the fresh air,
the smell of saltwater,
the call of gulls,
and the drone of the ocean.
The field recordings on this album
are from two of these seaside trips, recorded between the both of us.
To build upon the serene atmosphere
that was experienced during this time,
I composed music on top of them using synth,
guitar, and a portable radio,
weaving sounds as a string of memories, a guide to a Place.
A graspable arrival point, however, is indefinitely deferred.
Like one on a journey through the fog
who sees many strange things before arriving home
to be left with the lingering memories of what has happened.
A conclusion is seen just as another plot begins to unfold.
Much is left unsaid.
Watching the stars one can begin to arrive, always.
All lights in the dark are auspices that point to what is without end.

-- Nicholas Maloney
