Bastard Island

the weather is routinely 
no reliable reports 
set up the microphone 
time enough to prepare...

Bastard Island arrives as a collection of speculative fiction dispatches from spatio-temporally ambiguous elsewheres and elsewhens. These descriptive songs are fragmented and episodic crypto-narrative participant observations. They evoke disrupted temporal, meteorological, geographical, and seasonal conditions, and local and global social inertia. The songs inhabit ambient soundbeds redolent with spatial diffraction, signal refraction, small sounds, and distance communication.

A picnoleptic production in the English Asteroid series, written and recorded by Steven Ball, Summer 2018.
