originally released exclusively on vinyl by sunshine ltd (feb. 2013)

the symbiont is based on two short stories by horacio quiroga, each piece only a few pages long. “dying in a banana grove” and “dying in a canoe," are inspired by “the dead man” and “drifting."

in the first tale, a man falls on his machete; in the second, a man is bitten by a venomous snake. these men share a sense of denial, yet approach death in different ways. the first lies still while his mind races; the second races while his mind lies relatively still.

download includes lp insert w/ a personal discourse about the album.
