about

What is this record? We — Cecil, Ben and Bly — wrote and recorded Botanica in 24 hours. We composed it with our eyes closed and without speaking to one another. The music sprouted through each of our scalps and bloomed into a coalescent flower. We imagine Botanica to be a single continuous song with seven succinct movements. The record recounts the formation, development and eventual fall of a garden adjacent to the Garden of Eden — in an infinite universe full of infinite gods, from how many gardens has life sprung?
