Ex-Calgarian Jay Crocker’s experimental JOYFULTALK project takes new shapes on 2020 Constellation LP A Separation of Being. Unlike debut album MUUIXX’s glowing hum or the cavernous brutalism of 2018’s Plurality Trip, Separation pairs the tactile pulse of his homemade electronic gear with jittering strings for a single suite broken into three swooning movements. Crocker’s Sled Island 2020 set will be its Calgary debut and includes accompaniment by local string players.
