Off The Sky - Form Creek / Off The Sky - Cumulae Movement

'Form creek' is an excerpt from a long-play work entitled 'creek caught fire'. These songs stem from travels and personal studies of appalachian landscapes in particular to the region of kentucky where I'm from.
A series of phonographs, drawings, and writings were taken at various naturally energetic hot spots such as 'red river gorge' and 'sugar creek'.
Also a tally of weather patterns were interpolated then used to manipulate aspects of the music. All this eventually evolved into several humble odes to the haunting fire of bluegrass history.

from Autoplate website:

"Cumulae Movement" revolves around the formation of a well-known weather phenomenon know as cumulous clouds. According to Jason he wanted to "create a movement of sound that mimicked the nature of these billowy, slow, shape-shifting atmospheric giants. So this rather long, dense piece simulates the time that Jason spent watching the clouds slowly progress across his field of view.

As a cumulous cloud moves across the sky, its shape is constantly changing, taking on several different forms during its life cycle. Likewise, as you listen, you?ll find that "Cumulae Movement" is an evolving piece consisting of several distinct parts that are interconnected by the same general motif.

As Jason related to me, this long composition was made "to be listened to on a sunny day while watching an entire cloud from birth to death across the span of one's view while sitting and watching it in one direction. So find a natural location - an open field, a lake, a beach, a secluded hill or mountain - and enjoy this beautiful, placid ambient symphony.
