Conceived as a soundtrack to composer Mike Smith's adolescent fantasy life, Invocation/Transformations finds the intricate minimalist textures and banjo mathematics of Muskox's previous releases regarbed in the electric finery of early 70s prog rock and the Canterbury scene.

Muskox Jr. was the first piece written for this project. The title refers to the scaled down instrumentation of the band, and likely should have been replaced at some point. The core of this tune was written while lounging on a hotel bed in Shibuya in a dreamy haze of jet lag mixed with hangover. Aside from a little bit of Yes, the material and structure of this tune is all derived from the mathematical relationship between the guitar and banjo ostinatos.

i deplore the cliched terms music critics over-use, so please understand the gravity inherent in my usage of the words "revelation," "tour de force," and "triumph" in my review. vaisseau monde, le grand sbam's dynamic tour de force, is a stunning revelation, an astounding triumph. Tim Patterson
