Ringing Home 05:33
used to feel you, like a drug in needles, pipes, and cuts left undone, barrel of my gun when you aren't there I make you up one for billions, still I doubt if I get you, when I'm out don't you hate the sun don't you hear a sound don't you have a song don't you hope for long would you see me, and know what I've done my thoughts, my ways, my tongue anxious, lust, paid for, loved you're beside, behind, in front still I ask, for the dark and I scream, over songs
make a sound numbers, ethics, complexity what are these things why did you leave such room for doubt why did you let such drama out precious are all your thoughts of me love is the drama of new beauty make a sound please make a sound
he shall feed his flock like a shepherd and he shall gather the lambs with his arm, with his arm and carry them in his bosom and gently lead those that are with young and gently lead those and gently lead those that are with young come unto him, all ye that labor come unto him that are heavy laden, and he will give you rest take his yoke upon you, and learn of him for he is meek and lowly of heart, and ye shall find rest and ye shall find rest unto your souls


First record, spanning sounds from the clean and simple, to electronic flam, to loud and dense. Live recording of "Lesson & Response" contains aleatoric elements; "Ringing Home", also live, employes a bit of French for no particular reason; our first adaptation from Handel's "Messiah"; and the closing piece, tracked at our studio "Sanctus (For Cathedral)".
