Augur consists of six double bass improvisations recorded in Hartford, CT, between dates of a solo bass tour. The music is unedited and without overdubs.
In regards to production, Matt Baltrucki was free to experiment with some more aggressive production techniques, which can be heard clearly in the high gain sections of Phosphene II and in the use of ambient microphones to change the auditory space on Fluvial.

Urgency, groove, tradition, anger, it's all there in this wonderful bass sound. At times, riffs sound like a sequenced modular with shifting patterns, at times like a Charlie Haden intro to the Liberation Music Orchestra's next militant and melancholy piece. olivkon
