FAQs:

What is a Nap Classic?

It is a sound creation designed to facilitate fortuitous slumber in the form of napping (ideally), sleep, maundering, daydreaming, going out into space (commonly referred to as spacing out). The Nap Classic has also proved to be fruitful with many relaxation techniques from meditation to yoga. The Nap Classic is designed with the intent of exploring the space between waking life and pure sleep.

What is an installment?

The installment process was pioneered by Bernard Bernard, and utilized by that namesake in many efforts predating The Amazing Feelings. The Amazing Feelings have used this method of creation in their performance pieces Installments 3-5. In Sleep With Birds the stereo image (essentially 2 things-Left and Right) are maintained. But within that image we have installed the future, past and present in a linear form that happens right now. Have you ever struggled to conceive beyond duality? With the process of installation the back and forth (Left and Right) is extended beyond that duality, into an extended multi-dimensional sound jewel, uniting disparate sound occasions in concert.

A Picayune release. Silver Lake, December 2006.
