Double Vision is the third release of music
The surface of this music will not feel unfamiliar, but the thinking behind it is different; the assumptions underlying it different.
Taking off from the idea of “festival form”, the music embodies a kind of meta-archetype. It is less a confluence of interests, musical or otherwise (the archetypical norm), than a confluence of Being – or beings. It moves toward a more inclusive and expansive ideal.
Double Vision follows its own idiosyncratic path toward that ideal.
