A project that began in the early parts of 1998, Down the Puppet String, Marionettes is now being introduced for the first time since its original conception 6 years ago. Comprised of old and new songs diligently re-worked and re-recorded between 2001 & 2002, it also includes a chilling rendition of a Civil War-era traditional and a suitably deconstructed version of Donovan Leitch's 'Teas'.

Melodious and interwoven throughout this mini-album are the lull-like tones of Deanna Varagona's baritone sax exhalations. Sometimes an undulating piano line - played by Michael Krassner - can be heard punctuating against the textural rhythms tapped out by Gerald Dowd. Although only 19 minutes in length and operating in a stream of consciousness-like fashion, Down the Puppet String, Marionettes, captures a transitory world, whose bucolic plains & uncharted beaches are characteristic results as one awakens, diluted & immersed, such as from an afternoon reverie.
