Somnolently Soliloquy

About this Track

Released 8th December 2016, independently.

Written, performed, recorded and mixed by Jordan Brown throughout the many rooms of a warehouse on Pitt St, Brunswick…

Instruments used were real drum kit, real bass guitar, real voice, real upright piano, real guitar with unreal computer wash, no synths allowed. Organic dreamy landscape emerges from audiomulch patch, pedal pushings, tape delay and the scissor-hand inside the computer.

Artwork by Jordan Brown, again inspired by cells—roots and tree is a flat scan of human brain neuron branches; sky, landmass and colours derived from lichen ascocarp as clouds and space. Disc is mistletoe stem micrograph by Keith Wheeler.

Thanks to Joshua Lapham, Rachel Clutterbuck, and Matthew Storen.

Dedicated to Aleisha Manion.
