This record is about bodies: our bodies, my body, no body. It is a meditation, a set of lamentations, a goodbye letter to parts of me I had to abandon with haste. These sounds are attempts to co-situate our paths, with their statelessness, traditions, liberations, and collective inheritance of pain, disconnection, erasure. This record is about having to swallow those feelings whole, only to later wound ourselves to cut them out. It is about what we place into those wounds to heal.

My love to every person who has helped me survive, thrive, and continue to become. Thank you for helping me see days I never thought I'd see. My survival is defiant, and I want to share this defiance with you.
