paleontol0gist – I ASPIRE TO BE, HELD MOMENTARILY, BY THE TRAIN’S DISPATCHER.
album released digitally March 6th, 2020
This debut solo recording from Jonah Rosenberg, aka paleontol0gist, represents both a return and a culmination in musical undertakings. I ASPIRE TO BE, HELD MOMENTARILY, BY THE TRAIN’S DISPATCHER is a micro-environment of songs couched in experimental sound, noise, chamber music orchestration and pop-continuum forms.
I ASPIRE TO BE… is a “solo” recording in a most literal sense – the majority of the instruments (keyboards, guitars, bass, saxophones and bass clarinet) were played by Rosenberg (save for the album’s special guest spots, in which Daniel Carter shines with his barrage of instruments) and who also obsessively recorded and mixed the album. While I ASPIRE TO BE… is a new type of project that his contemporary art community has yet to see from him, it’s a thorough representation of his influences and experiences.
