Dismal Niche Presents: 

Tim Pilcher and Monica Lord Album Release

The self-titled debut from Columbia, MO’s Tim Pilcher and Monica Lord is a bright and instinctive collection of instrumental pieces for acoustic steel string guitar and cello. Both alluvial and enchanting, the music here considers the magic of our terrestrial world from the ground up. Delicately combing the forest floor for the first floral shoots of spring, wading in rambling streams and breathing in deeply the space so full of damp air between all things - the album exudes a joyful spirit of experiential and self-directed ecological discovery. 
Relying more on feeling than intellect and discovery more than composition, the pair offer up a lilting suite of Celtic styled folk, baroque classicism and rhythmic American roots music where Pilcher’s masterful finger picking is easy, lyrical and melodic while Lords deep resonant cello tones acts as a gravitational pull keeping the interplanetary tracks in cyclical motion.

Lake Mary (CO/CoMo)
Lake Mary is the life’s work of musician Chaz Prymek. Through him flow boundless meditations on the landscapes, riverways and wildlife of the American West in kinetic bursts of adventurous guitar music and subtle, pensive drones. Humbled and enchanted by the wonders of the natural world, the music of Lake Mary is expressed in emphatic and effortless compositions largely evading traditional structures in favor of spacious personal hymns following through the wilderness of deep emotional narrative.

The Moody Pinks Present:
Erik Satie: Trois sonneries de la Rose+Croix

Music history scholar, pysch guitar shredder and multi-instrumentalist Josh Cochran performs Erik Satie’s three-part procession for a ceremony. 
The three sections are written with no bar lines, imply a free metric structure. Each piece is written in an elegant melody/accompaniment chorale style, exhibiting an interplay of two themes in austere but cleverly designed juxtaposition, with repetition and occasional departure from the initial exposition.
