Movement Three - Quaternary
Movement Four - कालचक्र

This limited edition collector's disc contains a twenty-six minute musical journey. Vast, lovely and large, it transitions from a bleak, dark and brooding stormy night into a new dawn of contentedly chorusing whippoorwills.

Living in a megalopolis can be daunting to say the least. GOLDENBATS II is about time, healing, channeling creative energies and giving birth. The work was composed as a means for personal self-healing and empowerment both by the act of its creation and by the subtle memeplex it introduces upon repeated listening. The package design, etc. are all extensions of these ideas. The work was never intended to be released to the public though now through some fortunate external interest you're reading these words and hearing these sounds.

We'd love to create a meaningful dialog with you...

"...They anthropomorphize the planet in a sympathetic, guileless manner—it rumbles, thunders and pours, but after all the dramatic geological and atmospheric events, the terrain is carpeted in fresh green grass upon which sweet sunshine smiles down. This brief but poignant album is like mainlining creation and the first two movements in particular contain themes that bring a shudder each time they recur. With boisterous morning birdsong, the world sounds utterly newborn and resilient. This revolving “wheel of time” is bracingly life-affirming."

Geoff Duncanson and Dennis Meade have been performing and recording music together for the better part of a decade. They've been friends ever since their public school days in Yonkers, NY. Dennis has recorded music for the Imminent Frequencies label along side Asa Osbourne, Spencer Yeh, Jon Wesseltoft, and Jacob Long. Geoff was a member of the long standing New York experimental sextet Blue Velvet. That ensemble has performed along side Octis (Mick Barr), Mary Timony, Growing, Aloha, Medications, Child Abuse, Beauty Pill, Behold... The Arctopus, and many others. Geoff has performed most recently banging "resonant rocks" together in an impromptu performance on the streets of Kingston, NY with Pauline Oliveros during the 2011 O Positive festival. Both Geoff and Dennis have played in Sun Son Sun with James Zandoli and Victor "Poison Tete" (Rat At Rat R).
