About this album

Notes on The Hypnotist:
This work was conceived of as the soundtrack to an invisible film in which the central analogy is between a visitor to an unfamiliar city and a therapist exploring the mind of a patient through hypnotic techniques. The “film” is an abstract construction, designed to stimulate the imagination by way of suggestion, rather than clearly outlining characters, plot, etc. My own interpretation, though there is great room for others, is that during the course of a hypnotic session, it is discovered, buried deep in memory, that a sort of crime has been committed- one with both erotic and supernatural overtones (or, if not a crime, then a deeply formative event, in which the image of grass and a mysterious pair of white gloves figure sharply). It also becomes unclear, to me, during the course of the work, whether the hypnotist him/herself is not in fact a party to the crime. I offer the previous only as a starting point, from which I hope more fertile imaginations will paint their own pictures, write their own stories. —JF December, 2007
