Capturing the sounds of a pilgrimage.

Across the EP’s four tracks, Guthrie stitches together a tapestry of field recordings, French horn and electroacoustic experiments.

Gyropedie also functions as a document of a pilgrimage: “remnants of Midwest and East Coast soundmarks, instruments sold to lighten the travel load, sketched out and then buried under the new. Winter birds and crunching snow, frozen playgrounds, broken synths,” says Guthrie.

This is Guthrie’s third record for Students of Decay, following the release of Brass Orchids in 2018.
