“Tightrope was created in 2010. That November I visited Tokyo to tour with Yui Onodera to promote our Generic City album. On the last Saturday of the tour, I took part in a collaboration performance at a temple in Tokyo with Opitope and Corey Fuller, where I played some of the source pieces used in Tightrope. It was unfinished, but when I returned to my home it was completed in a short time. One month later, on December 31st 2010, I moved to Tokyo.
Though presented as one continuous track without breaks, Tightrope is a collage of 24 separately titled pieces. Layer upon layer, they were mixed on top of each other, and given a single place.
It has many different instruments and sound sources. Piano, television, synthesizers, fire crackling in the fireplace, whistling, pipe organ, eating ice, acoustic guitar, laptop, an afternoon conversation, a medicine drip buzzer, car noise, my ringtone, contact mic and many others I can't remember. At the time, it never occurred to me to keep track of these things. In the end, they're all collected, unplanned memories.
Tightrope came at a midpoint. In 2010 I made these tracks, mixed them and moved on to the next thing. It seemed right and was finished. Now, a year later, there are many things I can hear and relate to, presently and in retrospect. Many things have changed, and it's a new year. Inspiration is always present, but understanding is sometimes late.” - Will Long, Tokyo, December 2011-January 2012
