The music included in this album is a series of direct (non-edited) recordings made in collaboration with Joey Largent, an experimental musician and multi-instrumentalist.
Creating the soundscapes found in Temple involved the creation of a simulated "space” in which the recordings were made. The album is intended to transport listeners into the world of a mysticism and ritualized procedure through the ears of an individual in the ceremonies themselves. With that in mind, it was our goal to create recordings which felt as if they were captured in situ.
The instruments involved in this recording included a variety of analog synthesizers, Middle Eastern percussion, vocal processors and contact miking.
