"hollow.river" is formed from a collection of field recordings and photographs taken during the thaw of the piney creek near banner, wy. through the use of digital filtering and processing, these documents of the creek thawing are transposed to create a hybrid state between its covered and uncovered states. this hybrid explores a new state outside the natural thawing process.
"hollow.river" is presented here in stereo with some compositional elements added to make it more suitable for home listening.


released August 29, 2012
