All artist proceeds from this album will be donated to the Vermont Abenaki Artists Association (abenakiart.org). The space for development, recorded materials, and sites which I engaged with for this project are located on and within the still occupied, unceded lands of the Abenaki Nation. I acknowledge the Abenaki people as the original inhabitants of this land and their ongoing relationship with their territories, and I am thankful for their continued stewardship of this extraordinary place.

Recorded April 2020 - July 2021 in/around/from Brattleboro, Vermont.
Headphones recommended (as track 2 is mixed binaurally).

about: [Vernon, L.M.] Antique Estey pump organ, Sacred Harp tune “Vernon” with combinatory tones transduced via organ body, field recording of VQA’s industrial gang saw (Danby, VT); all material processed via custom convolution reverb software using handmade impulse responses of local barns, grain silos, train stations, discarded sheet metal, slate roof tiling, covered bridges, milk bottles, churches, beer tankers, frozen lakes, & more.

Special thanks to Peter Prvulovic at Vermont Quarries Association for authorization & clearance to record in the active quarry.

[witched windows] Site specific conceptual work engaging with cultural, material, and geological histories of the place we now know as Vermont. The piece consists of fourteen short tape collages made from sounds endemic to various local vernaculars. These cassette loops were then buried at their original source locations for 3-8 months, most throughout the winter. Additional material for this "mix" presentation consists of electromagnetic field recordings taken at each site and VLF audio of ambient ionospheric activity.

More information, including full material lists, burial sites, etc. may be found below.
