Peripheral maroons, blues, and ecrus stretch beyond the sled’s icy spray. Accelerating downward, cascading slope, past cheers, speed’s climbing silence.
The children glide through unknown clearance, piercing the cavern, the illustrious halls of Perce Rock illuminated by temporal projections. Witness to their time-lagged descent broadcast onto the arched rock face interior, seeing their locale moments before, as they skim through time, touring new and absolute fantasias.
Lead by pianist and composer David Moore, Bing & Ruth often swells into an ensemble as they did here in 2014 (two upright bassists, two clarinetists, a cellist and a tape delay tech). We’re thrilled to revisit the piece in advance of Dreams, a double LP compilation and 20-page gatefold book out this June on Cascine. It can be pre-ordered via Bandcamp and the label’s site.
On July 1st, we’ll celebrate the release at Brooklyn’s National Sawdust, featuring performances by Bing & Ruth and Julie Byrne with fellow Dreamers Yumi Zouma DJing soft sounds throughout, all organized by AdHoc Presents. Tickets go on sale this Friday, RVSP here.
