6PS063 - Particles in Progress
Travis Varra is from Fort Collins. His father was commisioner of the Cache la Poudre river, the liquid spine of the front range. This history leaks into these recordings. Acoustic guitar numbers, both sombre and warmly nostalgic, are accented by narrative clippings of voice recordings Travis either collected, or found in family archives. The story of a river telling a story about a place across generations.
