This album is the result of many years of collaboration
between composer Sergey (Sehyung) Kim and performer
Kevin Toksöz Fairbairn. All pieces are united by the fact that
none of composers or performers or scores or instruments
have ownership or leadership in the exploration of their
mutual interaction. Kim’s scores serve instead to curate
relationships between these diverse sets of characters,
inviting performers and instruments to immerse themselves
in each other, and allowing his compositional imagination
to subsequently germinate in this mutual dissolution. The
sonic landscapes that emerge are never fixed, but can
continue to evolve, just as the landscapes around us,
inviting exploration not merely because of the uniqueness
of their topography, but also because they shift each day
to meet listeners anew.

In the years that I have spent wandering and wayfaring in
these landscapes, I have encountered so many old and
new facets of myself, my instrument, and Kim himself,
even as the room for rediscovery never shrinks.

Today, we release this album, giving breath to particular
instantiations of these pieces in the hope that they will
migrate away into new environments and interactions, but
tomorrow I will return to the practice room, alone with my
instruments and myself, roaming once again in Kim’s ever
familiar and unceasingly transforming terrains.
