Description Diver is the live ensemble led by composer Suzie Kim. They recorded on the last day of Never Records when fears of the Coronavirus were shutting down the city. Two of the musicians performed in masks. While everyone was nervous about the pandemic, there was also a sense that we were lucky to have been able to record as the exhibition was closing prematurely. Suzie used this session as a reason to form a live ensemble to perform music she had already recorded in her home studio. The track Fluvial came out especially well. I think all of the musicians wanted to give Suzie a recording she could be proud of. I especially like the performances by the flutist and clarinetist, two instruments I don’t get to record that often.
