In tonality and design, "Patterns for Resonant Space" soundtracks a solitary journey through old photographs, building and deconstructing each composition in tandem with each narrative. The group’s pianist, Ian Temple, describes the recording process:
“This album was an experiment in reverse engineering our normal composition process. We started with sounds and noises, and then I responded to those with piano. We didn't have any piano ideas written before recording day, so I was able to respond in a very pure way to what I heard. With every melodic idea, I aimed to create the most simple possible statement, something succinct and focused to parallel the way that each track is defined by a few very specific sounds. I think we ended up with 20+ short piano ideas recorded in my living room on my childhood upright, and then narrowed it down to the ones that told the best story.”
In conjunction with Temple, Jeremy Young and Jesse Perlstein utilized a diverse mosaic of electronic equipment to assemble a textured base throughout the album. Calling on tape loops, signal generators, field recordings, an organ, and a glockenspiel, they explored new terrain at The Pines in Montreal. The duo played sounds through amps, miking each room in different spots to capture their true aural qualities. This method of recording would limit the digital editing process and reflect the uniqueness of that particular space and experience.
The result of the group’s experiment is a hazed nostalgia; a collection of 10 compositions passively investigating the caverns and cul de sacs of our shared conscious.

LIke tman1015, I am a little scared of this album. It is a deeply shocking and accurate musical portrayal of senile dementia -inasmuch as I've (sadly) observed members of friends and family become gradually subsumed by it.
Yet it is captivating, there are many moments of beauty along the way. I cannot stop going back for another listen.
I wonder if anyone (apart from the artist) has managed to listen all the way through in one sitting. I am not even close to managing yet. Simon Woolf
