Coquina Dose
Mar 2019

︎︎︎︎
Coquina Dose is the book on your nightstand under a lamp with a 40 watt bulb. It’s driving alone at night up and down the strip looking for a pool to crash. It’s the endless lights of luxury, hotels, oceanfront dining. It’s dogs barking, the wind off the water, dead friends, and sunsets that are no longer free. Everything humming, everything buzzing. It’s a new day, in the same circuit. Short interesting rides, followed by a loss of momentum. Notes of grass, lychee, pineapple, burnt sugar.

The Symbiont
Feb 2013

︎︎︎︎
Inspired in part by two short stories penned by Horacio Quiroga, the side length movements on The Symbiont reflect on anxiety, nerves and an artistically centered life. Processed guitars and electronics ebb and flow—following the tides of rivers and the buzzing of groves.

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.
