Turningwheel 04:27
i can't sleep you're here again wandering these halls kisses in doorways army of heartbeats drumming break open secret messages sent in morse code across the cloud army of birds ready to burst from my chest sing all night long listening to you bedroom eyes magnet fingers til i'm falling into your arms turningwheel carry the flow don't wipe the slate clean weave error into beauty we're not wanderers though our footsteps roam like kites tugging at their strings pulling us home turningwheel carry the flow don't wipe the slate clean weave error into beauty is it real is it possible make it real make it so

Fisherheart 06:54
in the time it takes to wonder i feel myself pulled undertow mesmerized by dancing color begin forgetting what i know hungry heart a force to reckon when desire beckons so take a chance follow fever begin the dance throw reason overboard every glance electricity flows little lights begin to glow kick inside beating strong footsteps follow along prick of thorn like a drug luring back for more salty dance of ecstasy calls upon a stormy sea to go in the thunder and the rain begin the skin again to glow no fear of what to come fisherheart always go will it tear apart will it toss upon the rocks is it thrill to seek or a feast to find below heart's powerful hunger ever risk another blow in the time of fading flower sleepy eye waning power just flow weave halo round the moon let dreamtime pull you below let the waves roll in slow chant we'll make it home we'll make it home chant we'll make it home we'll make it home chant we'll make it home we'll make it home

The Deep 04:14
curled up on the roof lions sleep inside i like to be alone breathe cool night wings come lift me up cold wind push me down strong heart drive me on like a drum then lay me down if i make it home will it have vanished in the air when mountains crumble down will i find you there wings come lift me up cold wind push me down strong heart drive me on like a drum then lay me down ride the wave ride the wave ride the wave wings come lift me up cold wind push me down strong heart drive me on like a drum then lay me down who solve the riddle of this heart unfurl the mystery beneath my skin sail into the deep bring stars and fishes home again bring me your boat together we'll row fireflies in a jar light our way on

Nebulae 04:28
palm to palm across a pane of glass love make frozen soluble in the vastness of black come bright nebulae this pleasure desire's cunning can't contrive so unexpected so courageous to unfold a heart layer by layer crack the stars apart sense vibration never felt before don't wanna run don't wanna hide may pieces fall where galaxies collide in the vastness of black come bright nebulae constellation rearrange sweet surprise show me your garden one footstep at a time sculpt a lifetime into one day universe unfolding in head and heart finger and vein enfolded in gentle arms hour stretch to eternity crowd forever into one moment sunshine in your eyes burn through clear the way life flow again in the vastness of black come bright nebulae this pleasure desire's cunning can't contrive show me your garden one footstep at a time find a way sculpt a lifetime into one day universe unfolding in head and heart finger and vein feeling linger life flow again

about

Triptych II is the second in the 3-EP Triptych series. You can read more about the story behind this project at artemis.bandcamp.com/album/triptych-i-eight-for-a-wish.

The original painting used in the Triptych II cover art was created by my sister, Jessica Wilson. Keith Crusher expanded on the piece, creating reflections at the bottom to transform it from its original rectangular shape.

about

Artemis San Francisco

Spectral keyboard washes and sinuous dance beats set up a feeling of warm alienation while Artemis’s voice heats things further. Over the thump and shimmer, she croons with detached fervor, the music dissolving in a storm of pixie-dust disco until a rude riot of effects snaps the tether and she vanishes. ... more
