Halocline by Duet For Theremin And Lap Steel
"In contrast, for the Halocline album, Schultz says, "The DfTaLS tracks were all improvised. [They] were originally recorded about 12 months ago and we have been working on them for the past eight months. We started out with around 15 songs and narrowed them down to eight. It takes me a while to get the songs sounding how I think they should. We decided to put it out now as a digital release, to offer support and provide a distraction (and possible sleep aid)."
"Most of this material was recorded about a year ago, spring 2019." says Burland. "Frank and I were getting together once a week or so during that time. We approach these sessions like we do a live performance, in that we set up, sit down and start playing, with little discussion. What I find most interesting about this collection is that many years ago a writer in Columbia, South Carolina wrote a blurb in the free weekly there, describing our music as 'a long lost soundtrack to a deep sea documentary.' After listening to our final picks, I realized that we just made that soundtrack. Coincidentally, we had decided to name the album Halocline which is a phenomenon in seawater where salinity and temperature affect the water's density and clarity."" - Mark Gresham / Earrelevant
