Guitars, harmonica, pixie harp, autoharp, bells, shovels, metal cables, Max processing and field recordings.

Recorded June to September 2020.

Malcolm Swanagon (age 4) plays toy piano on Anecdote 2, tells about using his sock as a glove on Anecdote 1 and drew the fox on the cover.

Anecdote 3 features a series of improvisations made on long metal cables supporting a power line tower on the levees at the back of San Francisco Bay. The sounds were recorded by attaching contact microphones to various parts of the apparatus.

Anecdote 6 was recorded on an iPhone in the next room. It is anecdotal in the sense that it captures a candid moment.

A very special thanks to Danae and Malcolm Swanagon, Caleb Nichols, Matthew Wright and Chris Jette at CCRMA, and Steve Viaduct at Stranded Records.
