about

Rather than solely draw from any musical discourse, The Child Readers (Loren Chasse and Jason Honea) found inspiration in the creative adventures of Rockwell Kent, Lawren Harris, Charles Burchfield and Sherwood Anderson in making their fourth & best album, Music Heard Far Off.

Presenting music bathed in the beauty of everyday things, The CRs offer sonic prayers to country, wastes of sea, songs, drawings, particular times of day and different furs, all presented here as esoteric sing-a-longs. Aiding Honea & Chasse's vision are three short films (the video album "Superstition Island," contained on the disc), eye-popping album artwork, and contributions from Mark Williams (Mirza), Rob Reger (Thuja) and Christine Boepple. Music Heard Far Off was recorded, played back, re-recorded and collaged in various locales, including the California redwoods and coastlines, Estonia, Berlin, Madrid and Portugal. The true stories contained therein unite listener and creator for a unique musical experience; these confessional torch songs offer an intimacy that may embarrass the untrue of heart.
