3. Raised And Erased
Monocarpic tightly focuses in patience, resulting or revealing the most basic beauty of music. Like floating down a river or moving from wind pushed sails, a natural tempo for the movement of thoughts through space. Perceptible, gentle, all together mesmerizing. Ringo plays strings creating sounds to draw you closer. The third track, “Open Source Immolation” deviates towards melancholy monastic harmony in vocals as the instruments find their way to accompaniment. The fourth track titled “3”, resumes with sleepy resonating picking accented off the solid steel strings of the banjo. “Post Grass” slips away into droning parallel dimensions, making sure their are no boundaries Ringo has left unexplored. The last two tracks focus back again to Monocarpic’s beginnings,allowing emotions to soar freely in the space Ringo and this composition thrive in.
