about

A short story that's equal parts anxious energy and and patient reflection, Words From The Woods explores an instrumental space inspired by 70s guitar trails, dark gospel swells, 8-bit textures and the vocabulary of early cinema. Galloping hip-hop beats and distorted synths are paired with gentle piano and glockenspiel phrases to form a summation of memories, a retelling of moments. The shimmer of light breaking through the trees on a still summer day, the melodic motion of insects in a quiet meadow, the persistent recollection of youth... Words from the Woods is the first in a series of works that explores the continuity and coherence of our lifelong influences.
