about

While on the road with Okkervil River, Lauren Gurgiolo began composing a set of tunes inspired by Soren Kierkegaard’s "The Seducer’s Diary." Her longtime obsession with the book led to 7 tunes musically influenced by the characteristics of Kierkagarrd's writing with deconstructed lyrics from the story. The music was written specifically for the The Dialtones, some bad-ass musicians and long-time friends from Austin, TX.

To celebrate the release of the CD, Calculated Carelessness, a special multi-media installation based on the work was preformed in May 2013 at the Museum of Human Achievement in Austin, Texas. This interactive, multi-media installation accompanying Calculated Carelessness immersed audiences in the eerie, dreamlike world of Kierkegaard’s The Seducer's Diary.

Music from the installation:

The release party for this album consisted of 6 9x12 screens, controllers that moved on there own, and a bit of deceiving--true to the sprit of “The Seducer’s Diary.” Collages of the tracks from the album provided the soundscape of this ephemeral version of Calculated Carelessness.
