about

I feel that revealing too much about the meaning of this trippy art film would defeat the purpose of it. However, the progression is clearly that of a romantic relationship. The track names, which I normally choose myself, were actually named after the five sequences in the film.

Normally, I like to write thematically. I'm a melody guy. But in this case, I tried to steer clear of anything that could possibly ground the listener.

It was hard to avoid some of the typical horror film "sound," especially since I didn't have access to more than one player. I owe a lot of how awesome this turned out to Tracy LaGuardia, an exceptional classical violinist and fiddle player who also happens to be my mother. For Exhilaration and Unfamiliarity, I didn't write a single thing down for her. I merely said "go completely insane, like a Death Metal soloist or a Ligeti Violin Concerto. Lots of double-stop tritones, crazy portamento and psychosis." This was the result, and she got each one in one take. What a testament to her versatility! Finally finding a project that gave me an excuse to collaborate with my mother was a truly special experience. It was also a lot of fun watching her do all of those musical aerobics and coaxing horrifying sounds out of her instrument.
