Album Notes
Shadow Farm is a Leesburg, VA based trio composed of Kathy McMenamin, Matt McGarraghy, and Kevin Hassett. All of the band’s material is captured during free improvisational performances. Kevin, a bass player, is also responsible for recording these performances. Kathy plays the synthesizer, trying to work in a way to showcase each of the voices of the instrument that are used. Matt, a guitarist, poet, and digital artist, joined the project to fill out the trio.

Some of the driving forces behind the band are the moments of inspiration that the members have cultivated over years of improvisation and electronic experimentation, as well as our deep personal connections to the natural world. We have tried to capture this to share the wonder and joy we feel for these things.

The CD Argo Navis was recorded during the month of Febuary and March of 2009. In the night sky, Argo Navis (the ship of the Argonauts) is a giant constellation below and east of Canis Major. It is the only one of the 48 constellations Ptolemy named in the 2nd century that is no longer still in use. It was considered too large, so in the 17 hundreds, Argo Navis was divided into four smaller constellations: Carina, Puppis, Vela, and Pyxis. The celestial theme for the album arose due to the stellar sounding nature of the first couple of pieces recorded, and continued to shine through to its completion.

Please buy this album so we can get some yellow yarn to make a fleece for a very cold ram!
