"Vantage Points" is an album about place, meaning, and translation. It is literally a tape reel playing back my memories.
When recording this album, I heavily manipulated field recordings from several places relevant to me. Some sounds were trivial, some were remarkable, but each one came from a place that has had a very specific and powerful impact on my life; impacts that I can't necessarily describe in words.
I recommend it be played quietly, as a low-volume companion for your dreams and reflections...
"Every day, millions of people found themselves deepened and dignified by their encounters with particular places. Most of these places, however, were not marked as special on any map. But they became special by personal acquaintance. A bend in a river, the junction of four fields, a climbing tree, a stretch of old hedgerow or a fragment of woodland glimpsed from a road regularly driven along these might be enough...Daily, people were brought to sudden states of awe by encounters such as these: encounters whose power to move us was beyond expression but also beyond denial.
"I remembered what Ishmael had said in Moby Dick about the island of Kokovoko: ‘It is not down in any map; true places never are.’"

both versions/formats of this album are immersive and incredible. there is much material out there floating somewhere within a field of spatial drone/tape filtered ambient tone, yet this record just stands on top. it is grounding. mk700
