Dennis Gonzalez, from the liner notes: "It's almost a month into autumn, and driving through New England is exhiliarating, as the trees are vivid with color, and fallen leaves line the country lanes along Narragansett Bay and Long Island Sound. This is the first chance I've had to travel since midsummer. A bit of snow falls as I arrive in Guilford, and the temperature has fallen. After playing that August with a quintet that included Joe Morris—the gig is documented on the Clean Feed CD No Photograph Available—he'd suggested that I take a few days to come up to Connecticut to do some playing with him, and maybe do a record while we were at it."

"Currents and Undercurrents," a world music rhythm track improvised in a single session by William Parker's guimbri and Hamid Drake's frame drum; it is played on all the tracks, mixed with the other music, [and also] played by the other musicians and recorded later on in different places [between June 2007 and July 2008 in New York, Chicago, and Paris]; "Chamber 8," William Parker plays double bass on this track, with Hamid Drake on drums, and Mike Ladd on vocals. —Michel Dorbon

"...three distinct layers interact on each piece" :::
  • "Inhabitants & Outhabitants," comprising the words and visions of Pierrepont and Ladd, the voice of Stephane Gombert, who declaims Pierrepont's words, and the sound manipulations of French producer Gymkhana.
  • "Currents & Undercurrents," an ebbing and flowing world music rhythm track improvised in a single session by William Parker's guimbri and Hamid Drake's frame drum, which underpins virtually the whole 72 minutes.
  • The extemporized contributions, including the staggering range of "Guests & Ghosts," recorded at different times and places and integrated into the finished construct, in line with Pierrepont and Ladd's conception.
