about

Terrapin is the product of three years of writing, workshopping, and experimenting with new kinds of music. Our goal with this record was to create pieces that were dynamic, focused, and tie back to a common musical theme. At the same time, we wanted to push ourselves as musicians with forceful rhythms and odd timings. Alan Lightman’s “Einstein’s Dreams” was a helpful tool in channeling visual metaphor into sonic metaphor, and many of the song titles are quotes from his book. Each illustration coincides with a song in the album and a chapter in Lightman’s book. Without concrete lyrics, there is room for more imagination, which is why we find such beauty in instrumental music.
