Microstates documents a day of focused, measured improvisation from E. Jason Gibbs (acoustic guitar) and Nat Baldwin (double bass). As its name suggests, the album is full of fragmented and immersive musical interludes, testing the boundaries of their instrument’s intended usages and the structure of composition. The pieces capture just a single day of performance but are the product of a year of collaboration where Gibbs and Baldwin developed a common language and shared aesthetic to explore time, texture, frenetic energy, and silence. The music is patient, dynamic, and follows unpredictable paths of intimate interplay, reflecting the dark complexities of a world on fire, with the bright potential for new horizons of radical expression. E. Jason Gibbs previously featured as a guitarist on the 5-volume WALK MY WAY project (2021), and has another solo album, Wolves of Heaven, planned for release with Orbit577 in March 2021. Microstates will be available digitally and as limited-edition CDs on April 24, 2021.
