Album Notes
The Ulysses Project is a suite of ten songs inspired by characters, themes, and situations in James Joyce's novel, Ulysses. The songs draw from a variety of styles, such as free jazz, rock, funk, swing, and taize hymns, and use free improvisation to try to emulate the ordered chaos of Joyce's stream-of-consciousness prose style. Each song is based on a specific episode in the novel, but is also aimed to communicate the themes beyond its complex.

Kirsten Carey is a guitarist who has played with such innovative improvisers as Elliott Sharp, Weasel Walter, Roman Stolyar, Wadada Leo Smith, and Karl Berger. Her music explores ways of combining improvisation, jazz, rock, and the written word.
