Murmurists: I Cannot Tell You Where I Am Until I Love You

Murmurists: I Cannot Tell You Where I Am Until I Love You

Consisting of 22 movements spread over a single 45 minute track, this album is a sort of industrial spoken word psychodrama, featuring poetry and dialogue by Bryan Lewis Saunders, Pixyblink, Michael Holloway and others, all performed individually without awareness of the final project. Even without any overlying concept connecting the spoken pieces, the reoccurring voices, characteristics and phrases become familiar, and the liner note credits alluding to personal ads frame this some sort of a vague love story. Musically, it drifts through experimental, dark ambient and electro-acoustic textures, with some distorted industrial beats. After it’s all over, you feel like you’ve been taken somewhere else, but you’re not sure where.
