After a myriad of manifestations, dwindling line-ups, old instruments changed and new ones learned Mother Sun represents the most concerted and fruitful effort to date of presenting the creative endeavors of Jonathan Cordle and Christopher Haynes. Finding in a collaborative format the space necessary for that presentation, Mother Sun is a symphony of simplicity. At the core are beats and melodies, later infused with lush harmonic sound-scapes seamlessly blending the jagged ambience of electronic music with the grounding hook of a great melody. Music always already inhabits a state of becoming, and Mother Sun is merely a catalyst making the transmission of such a state possible.
When Haynes departed Pittsburgh for Boulder, CO the two began swapping tracks from across the country using free audio software. Piecing together intricate compositions from 2000 miles away, Jonathan Cordle and Chris Haynes utilize the significance of their separate locations to further richen the sound they had already committed to develop, rather than allowing hardship to stifle creative pursuit. Mother Sun became a combination of tight and dense urban noise and vast, wide-sweeping mountain soundscapes. Extremes meeting in one rich center, open-armed, Mother Sun became what life sounds like in dingy basements of low rent apartments, in the malaise of broken engagements and the euphoria of new found creative intensity.
