This recording is the culmination of a wide array of cross collaborations. Daniel Carter and Federico Ughi are known in NYC’s avant-garde music scene for their prolific musical partnership that began when they met in 2000. Leila Adu and Jeff Snyder have a shared connection to Princeton University and have been collaborating on musical projects since when they were both based there. Federico Ughi and Jeff Snyder have played together in numerous groups including Federico Ughi’s own band and latest album Heart Talk (577 Records, 2016). Jeff Henderson and Leila Adu are both from New Zealand and have been affiliated for many years.

The final product of this joint effort, featuring Daniel Carter’s sublime playing intertwined with Leila Adu’s lullaby voice and piano ostinatos, Jeff Snyder’s unpredictable electronics and the abstract grooves supplied by Federico Ughi, is a recording that is a symphony for our 2016 ears.
