True to its title, from here to there in one straight line explores the extended development of a single musical trajectory. Combining elements of drone and noise music alongside persistent ecstatic rhythms, the tension between linear and cyclical musical vocabularies results in a form which is comprehended on a global scale and absorbing in its micro-variations.
How long is too long, how little is too little; what is the most minuscule divergence which can be perceived as change? Both an exercise in patience and vehicle for entrancement, from here to there in one straight line propels forward while remaining in one place. To be listened in a foggy state with eyes closed - after a glass of red wine or other delights - at the threshold between waking and sleep.
