    Anamnestic Tincture is a live album by virtuosic musical carpenter Paul
    Metzger, culled from many hours of concert recordings. Side one comprises
    Metzger’s public debut on his modified banjo, recorded in 2002 at a former
    church-turned-underground art space in Minneapolis. One of his most
    memorable compositions, “After Milo” later turned up as an untitled
    improvisation on his CD for the Chairkickers label. Jumping ahead six years
    (and several more banjo alterations later) to side two, the glittering
    “Orans” gets a workout at a memorial show for the artist Matt Zaun. As an
    acknowledgment of the occasion, Metzger also gave a one-time-only
    performance — “Dark Green Water” — on another of his mutant instruments:
    an acoustic guitar with the body drilled out to accommodate a cymbal set
    into its face, and ten assorted strings of varying lengths laid over the
    top, giving it a particularly metallic and dissonant sound.

    Anamnestic Tincture is released in an edition of 425 copies, with an
    original vintage snapshot mounted on each cover;
