This was recorded in the Sacred Garden, a performance space in Iowa city, IA. It was a small space and allowed us to examine some of the smaller sounds and textures that interested us. Because of the setting, it is somewhat unlike anything else that was recorded on this tour and a bit more like what we captured in the studio with Myles Boisen.
This is a picture of an opossum snarling at something or someone. I don't know what happened next. Someone might have been kind and let the opossum off with a warning or someone might have construed that the opossum intended the worst and it might have ended badly for the opossum. I hope the former outcome came to pass. It's really a tiny animal with far fewer resources at hand than the individual who took this photograph.
