ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In an ancient seafaring adventure, an eel priestess and a sailing man come together in an otherworldly, mesmerizing encounter with eroticism, exploitation, freedom, and ferocity. With an iron eel rake and a bed filled with eggs and crow feathers, she stands at her ridge to watch the ships, and the sailing men who come for her.

THE ANGUILLADAE EATER / JONAS ruptures the primordial mythos of women, sailors, sex and the sea...instead offering a highly-charged, deeply connected inquiry into the legacy of exploiting ecology to indulge human gratification.

Quintan Ana Wikswo's unsettlingly luminous films were created at sites of mass animal slaughter along the desolate New York and California coastlines. Her original animated 35 mm films reveal Point Dume's Paradise Cove where thousands of California grey whales were harpooned, lanced to death and flensed into oil, and Barren Island's Dead Horse Bay boneheaps where the bodies of New York City's carriage horses were rendered into glues and fertilizers.

Veronika Krausas' haunting, post-apocalyptic music for harmonica invokes the primordial cadences, overtones, and disharmonies of the Baltic coast: sailor songs, pagan chants, and the sounds of cormorants and seagulls. Bill Barrett's solo harmonica creates a compelling sonic voice, simultaneously ancient and deeply modern.

THE ANGUILLADAE EATER is based upon the original poems of Wikswo, performed by actor Amber Benson.
