Emily A. Sprague – Water Memory / Mount Vision – 5/24/19
Emily A. Sprague’s Water Memory and Mount Vision are presented in new and vivid detail. Through sound and poetry, Emily’s craft focuses on fleeting moments of crystalline clarity and meditates on expanded lifetimes of intricate meaning-making. Memory and vision, ocean and mountains, question and answer, emotions and infinity. Sunshine, lizard, sea salt. Previously issued as small editions of self-released cassettes, Emily’s two albums have been resequenced and mastered by Taylor Deupree, each including previously unheard tracks.
A collection of reflections are visible in the mirrored structures of Water Memory andMount Vision, two chapters – two halves – each complemented by a written verse. As much about the presence in youthful experimentation as the permanence of transition and maturation, Water Memory, originally released in 2017, is the first long-form instrumental music Emily ever channeled. Mount Vision, originally released in 2018, was conceived in a smaller window of time than its predecessor, the pure residue of intense emotional build up during a period of self-healing and unguarded reflection.
Emily’s mission on this planet may be facilitating – or illuminating – the correspondence between innermost knowledge and intelligent nature, and Water Memory / Mount Vision are most certainly monumental documents along this sharing path.
