Fly Pan Am: Mirror Cracks Seeking Interiority

Constellation's Corona Borealis digital series has only produced absorbing entries thus far. Following those by Markus Floats, Efrim Manuel Menuck, Jessica Moss, Jason Sharp and T. Gowdy, the newest addition to the series comes from the Montréal experimental rock band, Fly Pan Am. Mirror Cracks Seeking Interiority is an exciting 11-minute piece which comes together with a film by Charline Dally.

The new track is the first piece of new material from Fly Pan Am since their 2019 reunion album, C'est ça. It came together through online collaboration during lockdown, as the band members exchanged files and ideas, including remixes of their Frontera live soundtrack recordings. Mirror Cracks Seeking Interiority presents solo works by each individual member in chronological parts, and it was consequently remixed in isolation, and put together in a way to comprise something totally coherent and undeviating.

The band state: "The social and the mirror is so obvious, being and rediscovering the omnipresent objection of the recovered tendency to the exteriority by a hard, fast object in exteriority. (Re)gaining in self is being personal on temperature differences. Although some aspects of the recovering in exteriority are delineated to a loss of personal autonomy and valorization into pieces."
