...like lanterns lighting up, colored lanterns, one by one.
Art of Flying is the songs of David Costanza & Anne Speroni set to music by an ever-changing cast of talented co-conspiritors. Working exclusively in their all-analog studio, the Barn (featured in TAPE OP), Questa, NM, they have recorded 7 CD's & 1 10" record since forming the band in 1998. Their songs are hazy & beautiful, content to balance contradictions: critics calling them at first "clear & bright" & then in the next sentence, "creaky & weird;" "soulful & expansive" at one moment & "arid & desolate" the next. "Atmospheric, voraciously eclectic, momentarily Floydian...& thoroughly brilliant," is how the Eugene Weekly described Art of Flying's music. Originally based in Questa, NM & now living in Taos, Art of Flying stays mostly off of the musical grid. Italian magazine BLOW-UP called them "the best-kept secret in American music of the new century." Rolling Stone listed Art of Flying as one of its 'bands to watch' from New Mexico."
In January of 2014, Art of Flying relocated their recording studio to Taos, NM & dubbed it: Studio (C) Carol's House of Analog. Shortly afterwards, Art of Flying released two new recordings: the 5-song instrumental ep "WORDSWEPT," & the full-length album "I'm Already Crying;" on their throatculture label.
