Returning to Earth, this translates to a wealth of new material that we'll put to tape over the course of 2011. Without going into too many details, we have been approached to release something on a label both of us respect and enjoy, so we've been compiling and demoing a batch of compositions and improvisations. We also plan to commence production on a follow up LP to First Matter, which we hope to record during the summer and fall. As before, it will be self recorded. The plan is for a massive 2xLP (if some one is interested in pressing it, of course!)
Heaven and earth proceed without motive, but casually in their order of nature, dealing with all things carelessly, like used talismans. So also the sages deal with their people, not exercising benevolence, but allowing the nature of all to move without friction.
The space between heaven and earth is their breathing apparatus. Exhalation is not exhaustion, but the complement of inhalation, and this equally of that. Speech exhausteth; guard thyself therefore, maintaining the perfect freedom of thy nature.
