"Portend the End is a collection of new art songs for voice and trumpet.
This debut recording from Twins of El Dorado features words and music by Kristin Slipp (Cuddle Magic, Art Bears Songbook) and Joe Moffett (Ad Faunum, Inzinzac) as well as a text setting by composer Wes Matthews.
Portend the End engages the listener with incantations and sound rituals that blur the line between the serious and the comical, the meaningful and the absurd.
Slipp and Moffett let their personal styles mingle to create bizarre and beautiful new pieces for their unconventional instrumental pairing."-Prom Night Records
