This track began at a Banff Centre Residency in the Fall of 2013. I found Connor in his music hut, the opening theme of this track unwinding around him, the space entirely dark but for the glow of his hardware. I spent some time with the line, developed it some, and shared it with Faye, who alone in her home studio took the result and appended it with her own ethereal and percussive textures. There’s some TTC chimes in there too.
