“Orchard Days,” was released in 2007, two years after collecting Peristalsis into an album in 2005. Although it was also released on a track-by-track basis over that time, it was the first thing composed with the intent of eventually collecting it into a consolidated release — two pairs of sister EPs, named Orchard Days, and Fountains.
I think the pair, Orchard Days and Fountains, mark the coming-of-age of Ramp. While there are still some rough edges, I’m very proud of a lot of the material on these releases, and I think they speak to who I am as a composer. Orchard Days falls into a structural and textural space that I would like to continue to explore.
