The debut of FRIENDSHIP CEMETERY, recorded directly to a crude tape deck, features the music of a longtime collaborative project between Texas-based musicians Parham Daghighi and Steve Jansen.
Side A consists of an improvisation on electric guitar, which serves as a musical preface to the poem that follows. The untitled poem, written in July/August 2013, uses, as its source material, six common phonemes found in the Persian language.
Side B is a tape-manipulation set of an alarm-clock chime captured in a shady Albuquerque inn during a road trip across the American Southwest in November 2013.
Edition of 25.
