On The Brink
w/ Nathan McLaughlin
Feb 2017

︎︎︎︎
Failure, or perhaps more accurately, the possibility of failure, provides one with unique perspective. Better to cash out, or to ramp up right to the edge of possibility and chance? On The Brink is our first true collaboration - we traveled together with the wind on our faces, holes in our shoes and short that one layer that can provide the necessary comforts we tend to rely upon. Raw nerves, biting hunger and a drive to see the unknown corners kept us moving forward. We can offer these markers and surveys as proof of our trip and as evidence of what lies slightly beyond our immediate purview but with a combined effort - within reach.

—Nathan McLaughlin

Silent Period
w/ Gareth Flowers
Jan 2015

︎︎︎︎

Silent Period follows the arc of a long night/early morning following an unknown event that has led an enigmatic main character into self-exile. The four movements of the album mirror four different and specific states of being related to the protagonist’s experience and expectation: uneasiness, confusion, fear and relief.

Call, Response
w/ David Andree
Jan 2014

Call, Response was conceived of as a long distance musical conversation between Josh Mason and David Andree. A single take of material performed by one artist was recorded to magnetic tape and sent to the other with the restriction that accompaniment be recorded in real time as well, closely simulating a live performance. Over time, as the players learned more about each other and their methods, an overarching quality to the body of work developed from their shared sensibilities. The call and response format allowed the voice of each artist to be present, interacting and intersecting, within a murky atmosphere punctuated by melodic fragments and moments of clarity.
