Dao Strom’s Traveler’s Ode is an interwoven series of textured, ethereal song-poems. Atmospheric yet weighted, minimalist yet lush, the album combines voice, electronics, piano, guitars, and field recordings from sources such as rivers, sea, jungle, and birds to create a deeply emotive song-cycle that explores themes of displacement, diaspora, and hauntings.
Echoing the work of artists like Tara Jane O'Neil, Grouper, Black Belt Eagle Scout, and Tiny Vipers. Released in conversation with her hybrid poetry-art book, Instrument, on Fonograf Editions.
Released on Antiquated Future Records and Fonograf Editions. The first printing with reversible J-card. Listen on Bandcamp.
