Hugs Bison – Flying in V Formation – Hugs Bison – (2013) – mini CDr/Download
Flying in V Formation is the debut release from Hugs Bison. This 21-minute EP is the first in a series derived from a recording session which took place in February 2013.
From apparent chaos patterns emerge.
First we launch gently, taking flight delicately, then fall into formation, taking a path chosen through instinct. Once we’re up in the sky, with all possibilities before us, then we can spread our wings, swoop and dive, rise and fall, turn, dance.
Sometimes there is grace, often there is vulnerability and fear. We spread our wings, and we are free, but we are always in flight, side-by-side.
The only inevitability is that we will arrive somewhere, someplace. We never know when, we never know how. But we will arrive.
We’ve taken flight.
“This is a dark, shady and crestfallen critter. Over its runtime of 21 minutes, the composition lightens up and reaches higher levels, but seriously, one needs a figurative magnifying glass to experience the steady but slow and prolonged metamorphosis. Done entirely with touch technology, related apps and software libraries, Flying In V Formation nevertheless sounds entirely organic.” – Ambient Exotica
“I have been listening to the seasons of Vivaldi all day, and I must say that this debut record of Hugs Bison convinced me once again that there is hope for independent composers and artists. This record seems like the perfect follow up, like a Vivaldi of the future.” – Yeah I Know It Sucks
