The Fugue State Empire – Then down a green plain, leaping, laughing they run

Liner Notes

C: And we’re back! It’s been some time since first contacting the artist late last summer – I was so happy that yet again someone I wished to do a project with was game. I told them that we could use this thing to break some barriers. I could not have imagined then what we’d ultimately come up with that we present today. This project has gone through so many iterations in sound – a process that was exciting but also tiring and stressful at times. We’re confident that the work put in here has paid off.

There is so much that can be said about what you will hear, but to do so would take away from this experience. I won’t ramble on too long which is uncharacteristic of me – I will just say that I’m very proud of this work. From everyone involved including the artist who wishes to remain unseen, to Anouk Madrid and Negative Exposure with fantastic vocal performances, to George Harris who provided some additional arrangement work – I thank you all for contributing to this art.

A fugue state is a rare psychiatric abnormality characterized by reversible amnesia for one’s own personal identity, including the memories, personality, and other identifying characteristics of individuality. The state can last days, months or longer. Dissociative fugue usually involves unplanned travel or wandering and is sometimes accompanied by the establishment of a new identity.
