about

Canopy has carefully crafted a narrative that reflects the winding relationship between past and future- raw, elemental, and primordial to fantastical science fiction- a voyage that hangs on the edge of pre and post Earthly habitat.

Seabeams is a compilation of live recordings from the latter half of 2014 and early January, 2015. All sounds were improvised by Matt Muirhead and McKenzie Ditter, using their handmade mbiras, mboura (mbira/tamboura combo), a synth-slinkie, and the occasional analog "Little Bits" synthesizers. Instruments were amplified through a homemade wooden Soundboard embedded with piezos. All rhythms, beats, and ocean-like sounds were created through hand-to-Soundboard contact. Saxophonist Marc Williams can be heard on track 8- "Ringlight." The babbling of Stony Run Creek runs throughout the album and was recorded on location while the duo played acoustically.

Video of improvised performance can be found at... www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOzm6CPwIH0&feature=youtu.be
