SOUNDING THE DUSK MERIDIAN started as a project that took the sculptural and lighting elements of Keith Langergraber’s installation, The Dusk Meridian (2022), as a polydimensional score, and created an ambient musical reading of the piece. They performed the response at the Vancouver Gallery Offsite in partnership with Vancouver New Music in April 2022.
Their album Fever Haze in a Broken Ecology is a set of recordings made on November 6th, 2022 in a home studio, playing with and extending the ideas explored in their original interpretation of The Dusk Meridian (2022). The album sonically creates lush ambient environments steeped in elements of spiritual jazz, experimental electronica, drone, and noise contending with the ever looming effects of climate change.
