The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

"The production of these two songs is polar opposites, even though both are long-form songs with a forward-thinking force fuelled by propulsive percussion.

"Harbor Ripple Blue" was written and recorded during a week-long stay at EMS Studios in Stockholm in March 2022. I traveled to Stockholm with a small bag of percussive objects, a small drum machine and some transducers. I arrived at my apartment, a short walk from the studio, and met my host, who showed me a beautiful Nordic dulcimer (I forget the name) that was stored under his bed. After a few days in the studio, the piece was starting to take shape, so I decided to bring the dulcimer out and give it its final form.

EMS had a beautiful collection of vintage modular synths, so I played a bit of synthesizer stuff, but mostly I used the small equipment I'd brought with me.

I walked slowly through late winter in Stockholm, with snow falling, sun shining, ice melting in the harbour, and watching Lucy Railton play Olivier Messiaen in church. When I returned home, the piece was mostly finished by me, but I also had two friends contribute parts: Julian Morris (who writes as Layperson) on vocals and Ben Varian (who writes as Ben Varian) on drums. I like to take songwriters into different environments and hear how they tighten everything up, but also how they loosen their approach and keep it open and spacious.

"'Dark Air Quiet' has taken a much different trajectory. I've reworked this song so many times I can't count, and was honestly ready to scrap it until I brought in Ry Warner (formerly of Ohioan and now Natural Lite) on vocals and Ben on drums. I recorded the first iteration in early 2021, and after completing 'Harbor Ripple Blue' I decided to give it another go. Regardless of how it turned out, it's an unforgettable song, and I'm glad I was able to rescue it from the scrap yard.

For me, this album is very much connected to these two paths that each track took towards existence. An immense amount of life can happen in two years, just as it can happen in one week. It helps me believe even more in this path of making music as a true life discipline. When and how something comes into being is not for me to decide. I can only trust that I will be guided towards (or away from) sounds at the time they see fit. The album title, Ground Echo Dust, reflects this perspective. We are simultaneously drawn to and drawn away from sound sources. An eternal buzz, a constant ripple."

Artist statement by Post Moves:

"The creation of these two tracks here are somewhat diametrically opposed. Though the end result reflects a sort of symmetry, both side length pieces, both anchored by propulsive percussion and a certain commitment to forward momentum, they were made in very different conditions and spaces of time.

"Harbor Ripple Blue" was mostly written and recorded during a one-week residency in March 2022 at Electronmusikstudio in Stockholm. I traveled there with just a small bag of percussive objects, a small drum machine, and a couple transducers. When I arrived at the apartment I was staying at, a brief walk from the studio, I met the host who showed me a beautiful Nordic dulcimer (that I forget the name of) he kept under the bed. After a few days in the studio, I had the shape of the piece and I decided to bring out the dulcimer, which gave it its final form.

I felt somewhat silly at EMS, because it's a space with these beautiful, vintage modular synths. I plunked around some on them, but mostly focused on the small assemblage of materials I had with me.

My time there was spent walking slowly around a late winter Stockholm, snow squalls and blasts of the sun, melting harbor ice, seeing Lucy Railton perform Olivier Messien in a church. My return, with the piece mostly done on my part, I brought in two friends to contribute parts. Julian Morris (who writes songs as Layperson) contributed vocals and Ben Varian (who writes songs as Ben Varian) on drums. I love bringing songwriters into different environments and hearing how they both tighten it all up as well as slacken their approach and keep things open and spacious.

"Dark Air Quiet" has a much different trajectory. This piece went through so many iterations I've lost count. I was ready to scrap it quite honestly before bringing in Rye Warner (who once wrote songs as Ohioan, now as Natural Lite) to contribute vocals and Ben again on drums. The first iteration was recorded early in 2021 and it wasn't until after I had done "Harbor Ripple Blue" that I decided to give the track one more shot. Whatever happened to it, it stuck and I feel glad I rescued it from the scrapyard.

The album, in sum, for me, is very tied to these two paths each track took towards existence. A tremendous amount of life can occur within a two year period just as it can within a one week period. It helps me believe even more so in this path of making music as a true life practice. I don't get to decide when and how something comes together. I just have to be trusting that I will be guided towards (or away) from the sounds in the time that they deem fit. The title of the album, "Ground Echo Dust" reflects such a perspective - we sense echoes both distant and near. We are drawn to the source just as we can be pushed away from it. An eternal rattling, a constant rippling.
