Tonight is the Worm Moon, and we're all crawling out of hibernation, shaking off the flannel and wool to bask in the warmth of summer once again. With a freshly honed appreciation for fresh air, we'll all be gathering soon, faces covered or not. Our third installment of To Owe To One is a collaboration with a friend of a friend who has become a friend himself. Our occasional bass player, Matt, used to tell us stories of his friend Alex while we procrastinated in the practice space. Alex lives a few hours away and travels even more often than we do, but eventually we met and of course, hit it off. I asked Alex to join us for "Worm" because I thought the subject was ripe for creative interpretation, and what better medium for worm interpretation than the tangle of cables and clusters of buttons and lights found in the realm of modular synthesis. So from our own devices and across the void of the internet, we volleyed ideas back and forth until one had traction. Alex's initial creation was originally intended to be chopped up, reconfigured, and arranged, but in the end was left almost entirely unchanged. It writhes below the surface of the song like worms, bringing life from the decay. Too much? Listen and be the judge.
Special thanks to Alex (@alexmaiolo) for his worms and to Manue (@mnlsps) for her invaluable help with the French translations for @sulli_jt's verse. Collaboration is all the rage this season.
