Text excerpt by Bezirk Tapes:

"The tracks here take in everything from the synthetic chirps and splashes of 'Irimia's Bones Crackle' through spooky piano laments on 'Eliseo's Teeth Chatter'. While 'Halo Dragon' is a rabble rousing electro-acoustic folk dance of bounding percussion and polyphonic seven vocal lines. Mostly, the eight tracks are a beautiful document of Daphne X's playful openness to the sounds and stories around her.

The Plumb Sutra was recorded in an isolated rural house in a semi-abandoned region of Galicia. Specifically, along the banks of the Miño, a river which, according to Galician folklore, was home to witches, animals and amphibian humans in peaceful coexistence. The site is now threatened by pollution from a major landfill in nearby Eiroás.

“There we spent our days with the only other neighbor, Otilia, an 85-year-old farmer, who had never left the place,” explains Daphne X. “Her presence and the stories we heard from her, the soft rain that would fall continuously, the absolute serenity of the place, the fog that would cover everything in the absence of sun, the distant moans of the cows, the little squeals of the mink that would nest in our walls, the shooting of the owl in the attic, the purring of our shared cat, the sole company of the birds, the frogs, the crickets, the apparent discretion of human intervention in this vast area that sheltered us in those 6 months made us turn inward and grow like Otilia´s giant zucchinis.”
