about

Here, again, we have gone out of our way to push the boundaries of our musical comfort zones. It all started very strangely - no one was sure what to expect. There were two electric bass rigs, guitars everywhere, and a literal pile of trash in the corner that I tell people are "drums". We had no idea where the night was headed, just that it wasn't a normal jam session.

As with every album, it would be nothing without the other musicians. The talent of everyone in the room coupled with the will to totally abandon rules and predetermined structure made this album an incredible experience to be a part of, and is what makes it fun for me to still listen to now.

Also in typical fashion, in order to replicate the experience of the recording, the album was recorded binaurally and is best experienced in headphones.

Thank you so much for the continued support. I love you - We love you.
-Carter

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.
