47:34 is an emotive response to SKYRIDER’s (aka BUD BERNING) imprisonment is his own broken body-he awoke from a coma in a Mexican hospital with one eye sewn shut, his body crushed, and no recollection of what had befallen him. Bed-bound for the better part of a year Berning began creating music on his computer, examining life and death from the perspective of a man caught between the two. Here, he mixes live instrumentation with organic and inorganic sounds, samples, vocal snippets, and unregistered frequencies. Psychedelic and textural, the album sounds as though it’s preparing the unprepared listener for the moment bordering death and the afterlife. Eighteen tracks.
