“‘Time, Space, and Thought’ was realized, in bulk, around the first two weeks following the new year. An important part of the process was entering the sessions with as few preconceived ideas as possible and letting a more instinctual and automatic path take shape: cast the net and see what jumps in, without judgement. The resulting pieces were produced almost like minimalist action paintings, trying to capture these fleeting feelings in as few aural brush strokes as possible. I didn’t sleep a lot. I didn’t talk to many people. I gave myself time and space to get deep into thought, deep into intuition, deep into following whatever wanted to come out in those moments.
Improvisation is a pillar to this work, with the majority of the pieces being rooted in this practice, save for ‘Seeker And Finder’, ‘Pass’d To Another Way’, and parts of a couple others. Improvisation, for me, in part, is about becoming a clear and filterless conduit for a feeling to pass through. Of course, there are always filters and aesthetic is one of those. These pieces still fall into the familiar, yet expanding realm of the Channelers catalogue, building on last year’s ‘Another Entrance’ with additions of EWI saxophone, electric piano, and fuzz guitar to the usual palette. This work also falls into an ongoing personal ancestral dialogue with the folk musics and drone-based traditions from the British Isles and Ukraine.” –Sean Conrad
