Divergence is a companion work to Species, the group’s recent 2020 studio album. Whilst ostensibly Species is an exploration of the sonic possibilities of the Farfisa organ, aided only by a clarinet and double bass (played respectively by founding members Jeremy Viner and Jeff Ratner), it was inspired by two recent loves of bandleader/composer/pianist David Moore’s: the desert and long-distance running. Briefly relocating from his New York base to Point Dume, between the Pacific Ocean and the desert, Moore was able to indulge in both passions. Species is a study of suspended time and trance; not just a steady movement from A to B, but as something that flows, meanders and eddies, like water.
