Notes by Carlos Niño:
As the title makes clear, the 'More Offerings'
cassette and digital release is a direct extension of
Photay with Carlos Niño - 'An Offering' (IARC0062).
When Scottie McNiece of International Anthem
let me know that he wanted to release a vinyl edition,
an updated tape, and the full digital distribution for
'An Offering' on the Fall Equinox of 2022, I immediately
thought about putting together a second set of music
and energy to share soon after that. Photay and I had
already been discussing the making of Remixes, or having
others Remix, releasing source material, full versions
of pieces that were sampled for songs on 'An Offering',
and pieces that were in the same flow as the first release,
while we were finishing the original project. International Anthem
agreed to release 'More Offerings' as well and so we
proceeded to finish it.
'An Offering' was originally released exclusively on the
Photay Bandcamp page, Friday, October 1, 2021.
The self-made tape run of 111 sold out in a couple weeks
and we were stoked that people were feeling the sound.
That rippled on greatly with the next phases by
International Anthem in September 2022.
If you listen to both records, in either order, you will
hear the connections. These are kindred spirits that
twin flame, dance, twirl, entwine, form concentric, eccentric,
helixing around each other . . . The same guest collaborators
are present, and this time there are a few more pulses,
rhythms, two special doses of the inspirational Iasos talk,
the sound of Laraaji's Voice, additions by Diego Gaeta
aka Club Diego, a live excerpt of Photay with Carlos Niño
and Randal Fisher playing in front of the Marina in Los Angeles
as part of the floating series ( www.feelslikefloating.com
and the premier of the new Carlos Niño & Photay
Production Project: Sagegreenfloors - that samples
the Carlos Niño & Friends Improvisation from 053021
featuring Nate Mercereau, Aaron Shaw, and Diego -
that was previously sampled for "H O N O R" on 'An Offering'.
It's like rippling waves, wind in the trees,
breathing . . .
The Single, "Feeling, Now" (with accompanying Video by Photay)
is the first taste of the new Beat Project by Sagegreenfloors,
released here in this Loving Moreness . . .
Hope You enjoy it!
Thank You for reading this
