Turning of the Day is a challenging longform work in two parts, meant to be listened to in full, but at half-attention. Skeen recycles snippets of ambient sound from her household environment, from found cassettes, and scraps from the studio heap to assemble an aural body processing its own stuckness. Written for interstitial time, written for dawn, the small hours in which we churn on thoughts, the graveyard shifts of our minds. The gentle dread of blood rushing through ears. Music for half-dreams. Thawing music. Restrained music for waiting for reality to render.
