Murmuration is a story in three parts. A folding and unfolding path. Each track comes with a limited edition, hand numbered and dated poster. Nine Notches focuses on the space in between, dancing in and out of intensity. It explores sub-liminal folding that doubles back on itself, before and after the interstitial time surrounding identity, other, and excess. Threads woven together unravel and re-combine in fragile, straining, patterns. In the end we return to the beginning.
Where did you find it?
Murmuration is a story in three parts. A folding and unfolding path. Each track comes with a limited edition, hand numbered and dated poster. Sonically, The Gift follows Dismantle with clear questions. What is it that keeps us encased in our patterns? How best to present the tentative threads of connection? Sounds of static and cold snow echo back, sparking truth that is only found within. As above and so below.
From Void Tactical Media:
"Undulating ocean eco-quakes lead extreme spiritual territories. This second installation of Key’s Murmuration triptych begins deep after the coastal waters of Murmuration I. We find ourselves connecting the outsides, away from complex society at the more fundamental realities of austere environments. Emerging from depth, sonics climb to supernal mountaintop transmissions, emanating an ancient electromagnetism across space and time."
Air suspends our reserve on the Edge of the branch we each perch on; the opening of innumberable blooms anchored in eachothers weight.
Murmuration is a story in three parts. A folding and unfolding path. Each track comes with a limited edition, hand numbered and dated poster. It is a delicate dance to look at ourselves critically and the first track of this release focuses on that process. As I see it, analysis begins with a breakdown of known facts, though Dismantle doesn't quite completely break apart into digestible pieces. The less layered, simple sounds, are dissonant and at times difficult to listen to, as our own personal truths may be, but to move forward we must address them. Throughout the piece there is somewhat of a 'call and answer' conversation between the vocalizations and electronics, mirroring my own path through these questions.
Releasing each track separately was a difficult decision. In reality each is a complete chapter meant to be heard as part of a greater narrative. Dismantle starts off the triptych with a dissemination of abstract vocal questions which come in to more clarity in the following pieces.
From Void Tactical Media:
"Dismantle, the entry point for this series of long form 20 minute works, winds a vocal surf under tonal modulations the kindred of nascent lifeforms. This is a sonic journey, demanding to be heeded and explored, rather than merely auditioned."
Key is an electronic representation of ideas and emotions, opening doors, and unlocking deepness within ourselves. A reverence for nature as the path we all walk. Questions of time and dimensionality.
