Trajectories

Slip through the dawn before it rises up off your fingers, tugging between a candle that sat by the window as your memory of it turned into a lodged distinction of pine. Gated but not lost, it looses and wanes, descending towards a parallel of glass, brief in name only, held onto by water chestnut, the table set ages ago but left waiting until the moment finally settled on a time before we called it an evening. There aren’t any mirages here ~ make it into a package, or a goblet, or a slow evaporation, then let it swirl about gently, like an animated spirit of dust, or the sound of a phone ringing quietly in an empty home.


Trajectories, Michael Vincent Waller’s newest collection of piano compositions, is out now on Sean McCann’s esteemed Recital Program. It features R. Andrew Lee on piano, and Seth Parker Woods on cello. Listen below, purchase here, and repose.

Chocolate Grinder

CHOCOLATE GRINDER is our audio/visual section, with an emphasis on the lesser heard and lesser known. We aim to dig deep, but we’ll post any song or video we find interesting, big or small.
