Alex Cunningham, a violinist from St. Louis, USA, who was also impressed with the collaboration work with Claire Rousay and Mark Shippy, released the latest work in September 2021 from Arkeen in the country in a limited edition of 9 copies.

Includes 33 minutes of angry improvisation with a single violin spear.It is a digipak specification.

"After several stands out collaborative releases, including a duo LP with Mark Shippy and another duo LP with Claire Rousay, violinist Alex Cunningham returns to solo form with As Slow as the Stream, an album made up of one 33-minute cat and mouse game titled "As Slow as the Stream Cuts the Dirt from Beneath."
If you've ever watched a cat sneak up on a mouse, you've seen the cat making its way towards it's prey so slowly that you barely even notice the cat is moving at all. Similarly, you might not notice a stream in motion But, we know how quickly a cat can run on a rampage to catch it's prey, or how a stream can quickly turn into turbulent rapids. The playfulness of Cunningham's playing on As Slow as the Stream, recalls both Cunningham's violin on As Slow as the Stream leads you on a journey through the rapids , and just as a cat never gets bored chasing mice, you'll never get bored getting your brain shredded. In fact, you'll be left wanting MORE MORE MORE! "
