Time Being’s Phillip Wilkerson combines creative forces with sound sculptor Chris Russell on Vague Traces, a collaboration steeped in stillness and quietude.  Infused with the minimal drones, drifts, micro-sonics and discrete acoustics that are so often prevalent in their solo works, Wilkerson & Russell blend those styles perfectly together on Vague Traces, and the result is 63 minutes of deep drifting tranquility and sublime ambient spaces that seem to come from deep within a dream.

Riding the blurred line that divides dream and reality, Vague Traces intones a very special, delicate space of hyper-awareness, and the artists draw inspiration from their own lucid dream-state experiences.  Wilkerson explains, “In concept, the album is about the process of intermittent dreaming and waking which often results in pre-dawn lucid dreams that seem just as real as waking consciousness. Many times, my lucid dreams feel more like actual memories
