Album Liner Notes

Before Now After is a meditation upon time, a sonic homage to the evolutionary arc. Just as the coastline is shaped by tidal forces shifting the delicate balance of ocean and sand, The Java Quartet have sculpted a long form tryptic work from a singular cove. 

Each song was composed through applying a different set of melodic parameters to the Dorian scale. Explored and crafted on the bass then arranged into three distinct pieces for the ensemble, each piece articulates the development of a new melody, mood and space from the same Dorian building block. 

Simultaneously a macro (album) and micro (song) process of creation and evolution, the work reflects the Quartet’s 20 years of shared exploration. Before Now After beckons the listener to become a fellow traveller through this passage of time.
