About the Album
Declaration of Resonance features longtime collaborators Will Thompson (WATIV) on his acoustic augmented piano invention, the "Infastain Piano", and Chris Alford on resonator guitar. This album was recorded on election night, November 2020, in Will's New Orleans shotgun home as the duo spiraled through feelings of hopelessness and a nervous sense of relief. The intimate ambience of the recording and combination of these two acoustic instruments give the listener the feel that this is parlour music from a different reality or dimension. One might hear shades of contemporary classical, ethnic folk, electronic music, free jazz, noise, and blues but as whole, this album eschews genre and presents the music as it was performed- through instant composition. This new music, rather than focus on specific harmonies, sense of time or pre-established forms, deals with broader aspects such as density, juxtaposition of approaches, personal sonic syntaxes, complementary resonances, balance and adaptability.
