Three glacially paced epics of humming organ bass and majestic arcs of resonating chords, all named for and improvised in tribute to South Carolinian mountains and ranges that I visited in my youth. Underneath the igneous crust of these weathered mammoths, there is a very distilled and very traceable sadness. The feeling of trying to remember things that are already almost lost, knowing even what you can recall at this present moment will be more than every one of your tomorrows. Memory is like a sandy beach that slowly washes away after the rains and tides of age take back their elements. This recording is an attempt at saving something that I feel I might one day lose entirely. We'll have to see if the hopeful permanence of art can withstand the brutal, tangible permanence of time's movement forward.
