about

This double album was recorded following one-week traveling through the "Four Corners" region of the American Southwest. It is an attempt to process, in music, the fraught and complex histories, realities, and environments of this region.

Two statements of purpose and explanation, written by Michael Beggs and Evan Strauss, are published in the "Text / Context" booklet provided as a PDF with this download.

More releases from this project will follow in 2017, including field recordings and several short films. (All available as downloads or on discs)

A box-set of previous recordings was released by Cosmic Primitive in 2013. It may be found here:
