Days of thought I understand absence and constance To navigate expectation’s plan I understand I understand I understand I understand Love lights loss days come back the gift exactly whatever we are wherever I am in that I understand I understand I understand I understand I resist the broken moon to elevate my labour and wash my tears in the cross of paths I resist I resist I resist I resist

All The Stories Lyrics by Maria Zajkowski I have seen it past the evening star and in the morning rose Symmetry in half of Eden wings above the flowers grown Rising early without leading sunlight days, the river shone I have seen it rising early I have seen it rising early Touch the sweeter air of water always what we can't replace In the rock I hide my essence for the futures sown astray Stretch my hand in to the grass and watch myself just fly away I hear clearly all the stories of the leaves that fall alone

Momento Mori 04:15
Words & Music: Marita Dyson, Stuart Flanagan Momento Mori My silken dresses are made of coffins: You never had a future, Plunged into boiling water, Mulberry, momento mori The message is within you, White and crimson berries are bleeding on my fingers. Growing your white wings, Though you will never fly, Sleep soundly under branches, For it is not your intention To soon die. A felted capsule, A strength unrivalled, A sheen with magic lustre; A hope you cast in circles. I used to value all those worldly dresses, But now the only feeling, Is the texture of a deathbed.

about

The inaugural performance of All The Stories took place at The Abbotsford Convent, which is built on the lands of the Wurundjeri people.

Here the Merri Creek and the Birrarung River meet and to this day it is still an important meeting place for the Wurundjeri and Kulin Nation peoples.

The Letter String Quartet will donate all profits from this release to sistersinside.com.au and seedmob.org.au. to acknowledge the privilege of working on the lands of the Wurundjeri people.

This donation will be ongoing for this release.
