Release Date:05/19/2017;Notes:After a well-received debut release - a split LP by Tashi Dorji and Marisa Anderson - we here at Footfalls HQ were stumped about how best to follow up such a bar-setting album. Should we reissue some much-loved but unheralded album from the past? Another split release? We couldn't decide. Then we attended Three Lobed's 'Sweet Sixteen' concert at King's Barcade in Raleigh, NC. That morning, there was a palpable buzz in anticipation of one of the early sets of the festival: an onstage collaboration between harpist Mary Lattimore and keyboardist Elysse Thebner Miller. Though we here at Footfalls were already fans of these two artists, the music performed by Lattimore and Thebner Miller that afternoon - a natural blend of komische textures and pastoral melodicism - exceeded all expectations. Crucially, it was the human aspect of the duo's performance that most appealed to us: eschewing sequencers, prerecorded loops, and stock arpeggios in favor of an improvisational, distinctly haptic approach, the unique insta-compositional voices of Thebner Miller and Lattimore rang out like cosmic prayer bells. Lattimore's treated harp glissandos blended seamlessly with Thebner Miller's spectral electric piano, building small tornadoes of sound before receding and beginning the process again, like the inhale / exhale of some small universe. Within five minutes, it had become clear that this would have to be the second Footfalls release. We hastily contacted the artists, acquired the tapes - dutifully and masterfully recorded by our pals at NYC Taper - and began the process of publishing this beautiful work. Footfalls is very proud to present this first commercially available collaboration by these two postmodernist sound painters. We're quite positive you will love it as much as we do.;Track List:1.
