about

In Flux started as an idea we had towards the end of 2016, meant to be an experiment to see what the two of us could achieve with limited distraction and within a short period of time.

We had a lot of fun with these songs and making the recordings. Two are old songs (very old to us) that we wanted to revisit as older musicians. Two are one take improvised pieces that captured the light hearted mood that the mountains in December can bring. The other two are an attempt to create soundscapes, lending to a dreamlike quality that permeates the entire collection.

Almost all instruments were tracked by splitting the single and recording real time effects through the manipulation of guitar pedals, whether during the performance or set before hand. All songs were approached with the mentality that the first take was the best take and the more layers the better.

The experiment was a success to us, and we enjoyed creating In Flux. We hope you enjoy listening.
