about

IDYLLWILD EP was recorded live in a loft space at Idyllwild Arts Academy by Chris Reba in the early spring of 2019, following the band's residency at the academy.

This first single release, "The Aggregate Loss of Possibility," is sort-of, for me, about the passage of time (the title comes from Charles Yu's "How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe"). It's a simple composition, upon which the band embarks on a free improvisation that's mainly concerned with texture and a swirling, yet forward motion. I hope it puts you at ease.

The visual artwork is truly not what it seems, in that James Nasmyth created images of the moon's surface at a time before photography was able to capture what could be seen from a telescope. His images are actually photographs of plaster models, which he created based on drawings of what he viewed through his telescope.
