Album Description

On January 9 2017 I took on the challenge of writing, recording and sharing a song a day. I called it The Song-Chain Project, and for 203 days I immersed myself in the project, producing 180 songs, soundscapes, free improvisations, musical poems, nonsense, noise and other pieces of musical art. This album is a small selection of the music I wrote for the project, and with so much to choose from I decided on love, in all its guises, as a guiding theme. The songs are the result of compositional games I played with myself, and pages and pages of free writing exercises. The lyrics reflect the life I continued to lead for the seven months I worked on the project, and for extra inspiration I turned to an etymological dictionary and various folklore encyclopaedias. I have included the stories behind some of the songs in these liner notes. The songs were all originally written for solo performance, and I am incredibly lucky to have Adam Spiegl and Justin Olsson as collaborators on this album, bringing new life to the music. The first, raw performance of each song, plus the other 163 pieces of music I wrote as part of The Song-Chain Project can be found at ericabramham.com. - Erica Bramham, April 2018
