(c)(p) 2020 Sticks and Stones Music (BMI)
“Wood, Wind & Skin”, is named after the sounds of the original instruments that were used during their first album, CHASM (1995). Instruments that resonate from one of three sources: “wood” (marimba, claves, etc.), wind” (flute, recorder, etc.) and “skin” (congas, gut/nylon strings, etc.). However, the sounds of these new songs are more expansive than any of their previous four albums. And still, like their other albums this latest one has its own unique feel that is different from anything they have done before. Esakoff and Whipple have approached these new compositions imagining nothing as "a thing”. Rhythm in stillness and melody in silence. All the songs are instrumentals except for the final vocal track, “The Silence Between the Words”.
