ONCE AROUND THE SUN (2018-2019)
THE FIRST ALBUM BY PORCH SWING ORCHESTRA
RELEASE DATE MAY 17, 2021
Porch Swing Orchestra (PSO) began in 2018 as a web project featuring a weekly improvised field recording of acoustic guitar and an image taken at the recording site. Each new piece displaces the last. The project now includes well over a hundred pieces. The recordings and images celebrate chance encounters with birds, crying toddlers, tide pools, passing cars, and all sorts of weather.
Once Around the Sun (2018-2019) collects 16 of these recordings and images made during PSO's first year. While most of the pieces were made on my porch in Austin, Texas, a few were also created in faraway places such as Spiral Jetty in Utah, Bailey Island, Maine, and under a massive bridge near Del Rio, Texas.
The album will be available in Deluxe Limited edition of 25 in lathe-cut clear vinyl, which includes a 36-page full color booklet featuring the images that correspond to each track.
Lathe records take time to make and each order takes about 8 weeks to complete and orders will be placed as payments are recieved.
The pre-order price for the lp and book is $100. This will include high res digital audio files for your streaming pleasure.
