Like many, the results of the 2016 US election left us heartbroken and scared. We do not know what the future holds, but in this immediate moment of grief we found solace in creating a musical diary of sorts, which you can find here. The work is raw and immediate, not a polished album that we have refined over months, but we feel that it is important to start contributing to dialogues & organizations, and communicating with those who listen about where we are in this process. Right now, we are at the beginning.
The first three pieces are a synthesizer duo improvisation, and solo recordings by each of us, a series of responses. The final track of this collection is composed from field recordings taken at various protests and marches staged on November 13th in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
We will be collecting 5 dollars per download (but you are welcome to give more) – we know that PayPal has appeared on lists of companies to boycott, so if you would prefer to pay another way, send us a message and we can figure out another method.
The proceeds from this work will go directly to the following charities – NAACP (http://www.naacp.org/), NARAL (http://www.prochoiceamerica.org/), and EarthJustice (http://earthjustice.org/).
