Contact Compilation 4 (2011): We are of

Its a hot little project, and as such the songs are flying onto the list, such that right on the heals of Contact Compilation 3 (2011), we have Contact Compilation 4 (2011). The next Contact Compilation, which is going to be number 5, is scheduled for at least a month away. The idea behind number 5 (2011) is that artist will be randomly paired and will have to produce music as such in these randomly assigned pairings. Could be something good, could be something bad... as the saying goes... but we are willing to take a shot at this happy little accident, our invitation to Contact Compilation. We are honored to be apart of what may prove to be a historical moment in music, and sound creation/manipulation... as such, we are learning that others have views of their work as we do, that it is not necessarily about writing songs, as such, its about working with sound, and on occasion this becomes what people normally refer to as music and a song... but they are all songs, these sound works. On Contact Compilation 4 our song too a different approach. Only getting a single minute, we decided to write a little conceptual piece on the phrase "we are of". Please come and check out what we have come up with... each step is an improvement going in every-direction (EZ23), this is not about progress towards perfection, as much as it about working to explore what we can do with what we have to work from, as the world is given, we... in the middle and from whence we travel, from whence we start... and that tree, that one over there, its is weeping, can you hear it? and the other, the other is so much more...  a face, a hand, sweet on the brow, and ax sharp from the grinding... silly lover light us don't leave us now, but leave us, not to far away nor in those oceans, far off past the milky-way... ;)

AND REMEMBER; Contact Compilation 4 (2011) is a Free Download!
