about

This album is the culmination of multiple recording sessions with a rotating group of musicians, artists, and performers, that all function under one rule: no rules. Nothing brought to the table can be "pre-written" or "pre-existing", for all intensive purposes of the phrases. Everything is improvised and composed on the spot. Some songs are recorded binaurally, and thus can be experienced in what could be called "3D sound" - use headphones to hear what we mean.

We like to think of ourselves as "post-modern". Sorry about that.

Enjoy, much love, and many many thanks.

Really, we love you.

about

Menteur Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Less of a band, more of an art project - Menteur is a performance collective that incorporates paint, light design, and crowd participation. Menteur was founded by Carter Fourqurean and Sam Reeves, inspired by recording sessions where Carter would create sounds and textures with loopers and cassette recorders while Sam would paint to the sound.
Currently Menteur consists of 36 performers.
