Album Notes
"Sleep With Birds"


A Nap Classics Installation



Bernard Bernard: keyboard, installment

Casey Butler: baritone saxophone


What is a Nap Classic?

It is a sound creation designed to facilitate fortuitous slumber in the form of napping (ideally), sleep, maundering, daydreaming, going out into space (commonly referred to as spacing out). The Nap Classic has also proved to be fruitful with many relaxation techniques from meditation to yoga. The Nap Classic is designed with the intent of exploring the space between waking life and pure sleep.

What is an installment?

The installment process was pioneered by Bernard Bernard, and utilized by that namesake in many efforts predating The Amazing Feelings. The Amazing Feelings have used this method of creation in their performance pieces Installments 3-5. In Sleep With Birds the stereo image (essentially 2 things-Left and Right) are maintained. But within that image we have installed the future, past and present in a linear form that happens right now. Have you ever struggled to conceive beyond duality? With the process of installation the back and forth (Left and Right) is extended beyond that duality, into an extended multi-dimensional sound jewel, uniting disparate sound occasions in concert.

A Picayune release. Silver Lake, December 2006.

Anynot Thinkness

Sleep With Birds gets the earliest worm
Dude, I fornicated with angels during Sleep With Birds. Y'alls are threading the nest and deciding to stay put there. You're all like "Dude, we built the shit and we're gonna live in its 'Itness.' Comprende, my freng?" And, yeah, me comprende. What happened the other night was I thought I was gonna make it with this girl from my class but she was suddenly like all, "Oh, I'm like not really into it right now," so we listened to your disc instead. And, dude, I had the most inspired sleep. It was like all blue dawn and shit. My sense of it all was, "Hey, this is like a synopsis of child's play, the kind when you're too tired to run around anymore and you're just like all fiddling with primeval doodads on the floor watching whatever your mom is watching on TV." It's that world we inhabit whenever consensus reality fails us. This is music for the first mind, a reminder that spiders are your friend. Spiders, like sleeping birds, epitomize patience. This is music that teaches you how to watch and wait. Sleep With Birds leaves us with the assurance that naps on the couch are worth more than all the world's pleasures combined. And that's a good thing because, dude, that girl still won't sleep with me. But who cares because, yo, I've got the new Amazing Feelings disc. Check it: "Sleep With Birds: It's not a song; it's an installation." That should like be your slogan or some such. You can use it if you want. I'd be totally cool with that. Hey, I can't wait to take another nap! Amen, bro.
