Empirical

Adhamh Roland

Empirical is a collection of songs written between four years and one week before they were recorded in various houses, apartments, office buildings and studios in western Massachusetts and Oakland, California.

Empirical poetically weaves otherwise dense themes into liberatory sound stories.

Recorded over a month-long period characterized by the end of a relationship and strong orientation toward faith and spiritual practice, this album touches on themes of heartache, collective resilience, impermanence, trans body politics, transgenerational healing, and relationship to place.

These songs were recorded in various rooms I have called home over the past year. It's taken over two years for some of them to get from a notebook to a sound wave and less than a month for others. Inspired by the various changes in my life--from places to relationships--this album represents a sort of mosaic of thoughts and sounds from this time, bound by a vulnerability and (over) analysis that characterizes it. Thank you for taking a listen.
