Recorded in isolation, Black Interiors reveals an examination of the members of Black Spirituals as solo artists applying their crafts to specific circumstances, environments, locations. Together we offer you meta-praxical artwork that is completely new for us, and something we have rarely heard from other musicians.
This cd was compiled to support a four-city Black Spirituals East Coast tour in September 2015 culminating in a premiere performance at the Issue Project Room.
Special thanks to James and Theresa, Issue Project Room, Randall Dunn, Andrew Oswald, Jacob Felix Heule, waterSpace 227, The Headland Center for the Arts, Aaron Turner, Faith Coloccia and Resipiscent Records.
