Past and present assimilated by the human mind invoke the invisible. A memory of standing at the edge of Brunnsviken as leaves the color of gold fall through my frame of focus. A season in transition set against a darkening sky, the rise and fall of repetitions stretch through and between time. I recorded Midnight Xpander at the EMS studios in Stockholm Sweden in late October, 2019. Further assembling and mixing took place during the very unsettling year of 2020. Working from my home studio, intuitive exploration drew abstractions and hallucinatory fueled celestial interactions. The Night-blooming Cereus, Queen of the night, blooms, departing as the sun rises at dawn. Variations of sensitive progression punctuated by delicate bells and field recordings meld into the Buchla-heavy thickness weaving a cyclical backdrop of a mechanical churning, programmable and manipulated by patches, connecting one point to the other. Jagged lines, explosive sound gestures, scraping, and resonance of open-faced piano strings brought to life by the Piezothing set against a dense buzzing drone open side 2. Exploration variables both manipulated and discovered in real-time performance, cross over, an X, the light refractions between sky and water, myself in change, the changing season, a private world, continually revealed in contemporary restlessness.
