Album Notes
The music of Davey Williams and LaDonna Smith, otherwise known as TRANS duo, is a kind of split-second musical interplay. Because of their differing backgrounds and shared musical and personal destinies, they are able to merge the best elements of both classical and folk music into a kind of intense physical and sonic conversation. Smith, violinist & violist, is well known for harmonics, extended techniques, and lyricism while Williams clear cut Steinberger guitar manages forays of glissandi, energetic outbursts, and deep South blues indications. Togther, they create a music with imaginative Surrealist overtones, and remarkable symphonic lyricism.

Sequana Sessions

between the lines
If a guitar and a viola fell in the forest and nobody was there to play them, would they still make a sound? Well... a thud at best. But when these instruments are played by LaDonna Smith and Davey Williams, they begin to sound authentically as they are - raw, vibrant, articulate, playful, undeniable, free ... then you are listening to Sequana Sessions.
Each musical vignette on this recording brings to mind a visual story that plays out like a stop-action animation by the Brothers Quay. Mechanical, delicate, surreal - carefully constructed in a time frame without limits or expectations, but precise in movements unseen and unavoidable.
