Cremation Lily
The Processes and Instruments of Normal People; Trying and Failing, Falling and Water Running

Ebbing and flowing between somber serenity, ominous foreboding and forethoughtful joy, Cremation Lily’s The Processes and Instruments of Normal People; Trying and Failing, Falling and Water Running is a collage of sound. Curated and created, woven together moments of electric hums, water flowing, bird songs, all flow into each other and become one while still retaining distinctly their own place in each moment.

Acceptance sometimes, comes in waves, rough currents give way to calm waters, cycle back, are rough again. Weather-worn, the last walls of the house slip from the cliff edge, wood shattered against the rocks below, wash out to sea, return to shore again new, edges worn, transformed. Destruction is not a permanent condition. Dream-house lays as driftwood, scattered across the coast; ravaged, but ruin is not final, take the pieces, build anew. Structure redefined, reoccurring dream reimagined, bounded destined to become boundless. Being is not an endless circuit of demolition; electric spark to fire, walk unwavering along an unfamiliar pathway, create again what you always knew would be broken.
