A brand new album from Sinclair & Abrahamsson; experimenting onwards through well-known territories of minimalist ambient structures and cut-up poetry until they reach a new level of refined impact. Inspired by the emotions in the wake of the demise of a dear friend, the album serves as a paying of respect as well as a cathartic channeling of sadness into the layers of the psyche. This album is a journey of introspection – equally for the subject, the artists, and for the overall human process itself. What we find inside ourselves during shocking and traumatic processes can guide us to a deeper understanding of how to work with the issue in question – and possibly other ones, too. Transformation is possible, no matter how traumatic the experience. It’s a soundtrack for memories, mourning, and meaning; emotionally blooming to send one human being off on a new adventure while the rest of us remain in awe of the fine line between life and death.
Dedicated to Jessica Marshall (1978-2020).
