Album Notes
Will records music on his tape 4-track and computer using various instruments, electronics, and digital looping. His primary instrument is guitar, but he also plays keyboards, bass, banjo, and fiddle. In his music, he draws influence from non-western music and western music alike to explore the effect of repetition and texture on mental and emotional states. Will has also spent years on painting and photography, which inform his video work created to accompany his sounds.

The music on this record was written and recorded in Will's New York City apartment over the course of a year. After his band Duchampion went on permanent hiatus at the beginning of 2011, Will began to focus more on writing his own songs, something he hadn't done since he began learning guitar. He took the experience of playing guitar and bass in bands combined with his more experimental instrumental solo explorations and used it to flesh out his musical ideas into full-fledged expressions of pain, loss, and struggle. The lyrical themes reflect Will's attempt to find meaning and guidance at an age when the whole world seems before you, yet nothing is certain. Will's aim is to provide a cathartic relief to others who resonate with these ideas and conflicts.
