*This piece is being released as a single in commemoration of the Juneteenth holiday. I am joining Bandcamp in donating 100% of my sales on June 19th (for this single and every album) to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
This piece was conceptualized and recorded specifically in commemoration of the Juneteenth holiday. It takes the form of a "subterranean meditation," following my previous composition "cries&screams." I began the process by examining and meditating on the term ablutions, the ceremonial or routine washing of ones body or ones possessions; and perhaps not so metaphorically referring to the body politic, but also reaching back through our nation's history, where we are now, and what our collective future may hold.
Mechanically, it is a multi-track composition for analogue modular synthesizer and field recordings.
