Listen Ability Rating: A CSI vs. Soap opera outakes mashup. You decide if he gets to the truth. Soothing to the mind and ears.
Delving deeper into meanings beyond fleeting hesitations. There is An Echo , A Stain, from Bjork's Vespertine album. Referring to the sound of a last breath as it moves thru space around the deathbed. An Armchair Traveller delivers up Walking Tracks. Referring to the footsteps we take down the long and circular road. Ending with Ben Frost and a Deconstructing Michael Gira from Evenings at Room40 and some sort of Untitled Transient.
In between, the sound fabric is woven with a tangle of the never ending line of people about to expire. The drama and the descent into nothingness. The image of a solitary figure against the afternoon sun, light streaming in from the open window, curtains floating around her, "I See You, Robin I SEE You!" and then it ends and the illusions fall away.
