Our Album is about night journeys -- but if the night is it's usual metaphor, then this project is really about the process of attempting to get from one place to another, from here to there without the usual, obvious and dependable sources of light. It means we must use other guideposts t0 re-orient ourselves. There is the implicit necessity to put our faith both in ourselves as well as in unseen forces and hands, given the absence of the usual progress markers. Destinations can become elusive, unexpected or nonexistent. At the end of the day (so to speak), it is about the journey and how we conduct ourselves through it.? ? The absence of the obvious sources of light will stimulate or unleash any number of emotional states: exhilaration, loneliness, love, and especially shifting degrees of trepidation, anxiety, and terror. Sadness is de rigueur for many reasons, none of which will be elaborated upon here. Perhaps the idea is to shift our perspective from looking at these states not merely as reactions to the journey, but also as one's assigned traveling companions. The songs that we have selected seem to be about solo journeys. The night journey is a mucky trek through the marshes of one's own soul, with the annoying squishy sounds of one's own faltering boots as the principal soundtrack. The sense of isolation certainly darkens the shade of the darkness. But perhaps the journey resolves once we make a peace with loneliness, and in so doing, find new sources of connectedness. It is a journey that we all make alone together. ?And getting our Night Journey Program under way, we start with Insomnia, untethering ourselves from our usual biological rhythms so that we can be more facilely hurled into The Night. But with any modicum of luck we return (con) Recuerdo, and like the inadvertent singing passengers, we are very tired but very merry, having emerged from waters that otherwise might have engulfed us. We return to the safety and familiarity of the ground from which we left; but it is more sacred ground for having made the Night Journey... Praise for Noctambule: Travel in the Shadows 'The irregular phrases, unpredictable meters and strangely beautiful harmonies produced by Notctambule's overlapping voices, guitars, and mandolins conjure a nocturnal world in which the words of some of our finest poets take shape and snap together magically like recently discovered pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Travel in the Shadows is folk music at it's best--hand made, without a template.' - Alex De Grassi '..deeply moved and impressed! Ambitious and evocative theme, wonderfully chosen texts, beautiful and intricate arrangements, and highly polished performances, both musically and sonically.' -Neal Stulberg, Professor of Music and Director of Orchestral Studies, UCLA '...sweet plucked string textures and wonderful vocal layers!' - Mike Marshall Song Notes - 1. Insomnia Robert Service A case of insomnia opens the door to a night of unexpected adventure. Following World War I, Robert Service settled in Paris. While a wealthy man, he would don old clothes at night and visit the darkest dives in the city. These experiences were then memorialized in Service's Ballads of a Bohemian (1921). Our setting of Insomnia actually represents Marla's interweaving of two consecutive poems in this volume, Insomnia and Moon Song. 2. Noctambule Robert Service Another from Service's Ballads of a Bohemian, Noctambule takes us down from the glistening rooftops to the darker u Noctambule: Travel in the Shadows
