Melancholic, warm, pensive, with a sombre wonder for everyday experience, A Passage of Concrete ebbs and flows across an electroacoustic narrative of fragmented memory tethered to the present moment, unravelling movement, location, distance in a story that cares about place as both texture and emotional notation. Sounds from crowded streets, parks, empty apartments, and high-ceilinged spaces all fit into Honig's music on equal footing with kick drums, household percussion, saturated piano, and stretched-out horns. Steady rhythms embed themselves in gauzy melody, playing with ideas of various 4/4 genres while slowing things down a few notches. Honig doesn't fit his sound neatly into these categories but carefully considers the influence on his musical experience and direction.
