In Birmingham, AL there exists a cable-tv-station tower on the mountain that overlooks the city. It stands at 1,333 ft--which is relatively tall for buildings and station towers generally--yet goes largely unappreciated by most of Birmingham's citizens because it is not meant to be aesthetic. This did not stop me from ascribing great beauty to it. This album is an homage to the under-appreciated majesty of this structure. My proximity to the tower during the writing and recording of this album not only left its philosophical influence, but musical imprint on the raw audio as well (see comments for "Heirs to the Ease (Sway Us)".
The album is defined by an experimental compositional style and inclusion of dynamic production effects.
