In fact, in the dream, I was aware that I was taking an unusual route, though one only slightly variant from my “normal”.

“Vernal” was recorded shortly after the Spring Equinox of 2020, in the early days of quarantine, as the crowded hush of isolation was just settling in. Its pitch series is derived from a spectral analysis of the featured bell sound, and its two synthetic sources (digital sine and analog square waves), in addition to the organic bell, were subjected to various tape recording and resultant degradation processes, then mixed in the Wave Field Synthesis environment. Despite this somewhat analytical methodology, it still manages somehow to belong within the uncertain expectancy of this now long-extended liminal period, in which something – nobody knows what – is waiting to assume shape, during which the contents of mind are the only actual resources available (as they ever were). Perhaps that makes this a song about waiting; waiting for this New Creature, which emerges strangely from around the corner just turned.
