about

Originally composed as part of an immersive exhibit featuring photos by Wallace Barber of British Columbia’s West Coast, Somewhere, BC is a place of mist-cloaked, muted magic.

Performed on electric guitar and cello, the long form piece was written as Lyons filled his studio with projections of Barber’s photos and worked towards an understated vocabulary of sounds and subsumed, greyscale motifs to complement the tone of the photographic works.

Slow-paced and gently shifting, the piece is propulsive at the same time. Cello rolls through like deep fog, while a range of guitar techniques (percussion, metallic bowing, etc) create an absorbing 43+ minute soundscape.

Limbs of the Stars Vancouver, British Columbia

Called “a thinking person’s musical feast” by the Georgia Straight, this unhurried, filmic group is autumnal, masterfully paced, and strangely beautiful.
