Six Missing is TJ Dumser and Eric Tait.
Longtime musical collaborators and friends, Dumser and Tait decided to embark on more fulfilling and experimental musical endeavors.
Relying heavily on effects and improvisation, meditative pieces began to take shape. Shedding the more traditional format of songwriting and opting for a more pure form of expression, the two often times approach sessions with no plan.
The result is an evolving sonic landscape that provides room for the listener to think and be present in the moment.
Six Missing draws its inspiration from the Battle of Brandywine: The British Army defeated the American Army and forced them to withdraw toward the American capital of Philadelphia. The engagement occurred near Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania neighboring the facilities in which the two began recording, during Howe's campaign to take Philadelphia, part of the American Revolutionary War. More troops fought at Brandywine than any other battle of the American Revolution. It was the longest single-day battle of the war, with continuous fighting for 11 hours.
The spirit of one of the deceased made itself known.
The band began the next day.
