by Emerald Suspension

Dark sound collage twists with traditional song structures to somehow find harmony amid some weighty themes.  An experimental synthesis of disillusionment and the divine; faith and fear; the natural, unnatural and the supernatural...& what not.

Album Notes
Emerald Suspension creates experimental music and audio art. Their first album, Playing the Market, was based on patterns found in the stock market and economic data. Their creative spirit now takes on new life with their second full length album, DIVINATION.

DIVINATION merges sound collage with traditional song structures to somehow find harmony amid some weighty themes.  A synthesis of disillusionment and the divine; faith and fear; the natural, unnatural and the supernatural.  Too prententious?  Well, at least you will find a rocking arrangement of "Mildred Pierce" by Sonic Youth and a unique cover of H.R. Pufnstuf!

DIVINATION includes plenty of the musical oddities expected from Emerald Suspension.  Arrangements include some recognizable instruments as well as the sounds of:

Morse code drum patterns

Short wave secret number broadcasts

Electric razors

A Muslim call to prayer

Shopping carts

Bowed metal

Readings from a declassified CIA training manual

And other surprises

A little something for all of us sinners.
