Recorded over a 6 week period in 2016, Diary is a record of a time, and a place. The thirty improvisations, recorded at home, in the months before the birth of their first child become a daily record of changing moods, changing weather and the hopes and expectations of parents to be. The title of each track includes the date of recording and a name of phrase that reflects what the improvisation became.
“By beginning a diary, I was already conceding that life would be more bearable if I looked at it as an adventure and a tale. I was telling myself the story of a life, and this transmutes into an adventure, the things which can shatter you.”
The original filmed performances of all 30 of the Diary improvisations are available to watch on YouTube, including this compilation video of the entire project.
