APL033 >> OFF THE SKY - CAUSTIC LIGHT
	  [29.08.2005 | A SPACE OF WARM AMBIENT GUITARS]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To gain insight into Off The Sky's (Jason Corder) current work we cast a ray 
through "Caustic Light EP". A new release on autoplate after his "Studies of 
Form in Transit" [APL014] and "The Transitions" [APL027] (under his old moniker 
Color By Numbers). This EP grew up evolutionary to what it is now - a collection 
of four tracks whose atmosphere is created by guitar particles and floating 
ambient scapes.

When asked what the story behind this "caustic light" concept was, Jason 
responded, "While the songs evolved, textures and subtleties were molded around 
a pre-existing idea surrounding caustic light play. The constant random patterns 
of light at the bottom of a pool or from light cutting through crystals and 
dancing on a table in prismic fashion always caught my childhood imagination 
leaving a strange, sentimentaly charged residue. The memories of these caustics 
has been translated with guitar notes being chopped into granulated shards of 
sound. The guitar always will, be an instrument that has an illuminus tone to it 
- especially the higher notes and the picked harmonics like those in 'through 
time stained windows'. Also the sign wave seems a perfectly synonymous paralell 
to steady beams of lights...

So lately dreams have been a prevelent activity for me. An awareness point has 
been reached in REM of being cognative enough to notice a low, constant dancing 
of light surrounding objects. There is always a soft, elusive ring flooding my 
peripheral dream window similar to an effect used to simulate memory floods in 
an old film called 'Dark City'.

This effect in a recent lucid dream, birthed an idea for a poem. All of the 
titles of each track of the EP are all sucessive lines from this short poem 
which is titled 'requiem inconnu'. It is an ambiguous story from the last moment 
memories of an old man as his soul escapes.

her soft circumference,
dripping lightly, diffuses...
like caustic light bending backwards
through time stained windows

The old man, an unknown, lonely hermit, remembers back, like in a dream, to a 
watery memory of a prevalent past lover. In his time stained mind's eye, her 
form bends and flips around like caustic light crawling on coral beneath an 
abstract ocean. This is his last vision of love lost and love gained again at 
last through the bridge of his eternal memory.

So each song title essentialy stands on its own but also the whole of all the 
titles make up a pertinant paragraph of poetry that coincides with the core 
concept for the album - a track title poem."

With this EP Jason creates a bridge to his upcoming release 'it is impossible 
to say just what i mean' due out on Stilll records in Belgium this September 
(www.stilll.org).
