Product Description

4 tracks, 59 minutes.  An album that creates an emotional dialogue between musician and listener, Asva communicate the journey from darkness into light.  Packaged in an oversized gatefold sleeve.  Pressed in 180gm black (500 copies) and 180gm clear (300 copies) vinyl. 

G. Stuart Dahlquist began working on Futurists Against The Ocean after taking several years hiatus away from the doom/drone music that in earlier years had so entranced him. It seemed that there could be a deeper connection for the listener, some of the mind's buttons could be pushed to create an emotional dialogue beyond the sheer power of all that sound. It was difficult to find people interested in going beyond what the genre had already accomplished. Creating Futurists, Dahlquist and his collaborator Brad Mowen felt that bringing musicians in from diverse musical backgrounds including Gamelan, Middle Eastern pop and contemporary classical, might help to create the atmospheres they had hoped would define Asva as a different breed altogether.

The demos were recorded by Dahlquist over the course of a week's worth of all night sessions in the basement of a museum, and the music was promptly sent off to the other members of Asva - Brad Mowen, Trey Spruance, Troy Swanson, John Schuller, Jessika Kinney, and Randall Dunn, each of whom worked out their individual voices according to the parameters set by those early demos. The result became Futurists Against The Ocean, a record that evokes a multitude imagery; the stark landscapes of the songs on the first disc lead one on a path to the fragile beauty of the second. Futurists Against The Ocean is quite literally a journey from dark to light, from chaos through to a realization of the self.
