Moth Masque

In the entire history of Stone Breath, only one concept video was made - Francesco Paladino and Maria Assunta Karini made a video for "A Dream of You in the Garden of Gethsemane"...there is talk of more videos and short films being made in the future, but thus far, the single concept video is all we have. It has gone unseen by most for many years but finally appears now as a bonus feature on the DVD in the Moth Masque box set.

Moth Masque was one of three somewhat more experimental projects I began as we took a temporary break from Stone Breath (Moth Masque, then Black Happy Day, and finally Crow Tongue). It's something I did with Alicia Lee Wade and a banjo (and loads of effects). The original CDr is long out of print - we did a second album that we never finished at the time. This was finished these many years later and we added a third album (made from sound sources from the first two and new vocals). Francesco and Maria also made a Moth Masque film - they took the entire album and combined it with their own themes to make a wondrous strange and haunting piece of work. This is on the DVD too, along with another Moth Masque video for the song "Life's Lesson."

The Moth Masque box set will be ready in early January 2013. You can pre-order the box now...just click HERE.
