Today is the release date for time is being, a dreamy & meditative electronic pop album by Salt Lake City-based songwriter, musician, tattooer, and fine artist Jill Whit. The album was written during the long days of the pandemic in 2020, when, like many others, Whit found herself spending more time alone than ever before. "The album is really an exploration into the body,” she explains, “It's about knowing yourself through solitude - gaining a connection to your physical body. It relates to opening up to your inner voice, and connecting the body and spirit through physical and emotional movement; to be ever accepting, shifting, breathing, living, being."

The tape edition of time is being is accompanied by a 128-page, cassette-sized zine of photos, drawings & lyrics that document Whit's year in quarantine. The tape & zine are packaged together in a butterfly-style double cassette case.
In his review for Undrcurrents, writer David Wilikofsky calls time is being "intimate and beautiful," continuing, "time is being is a project greater than the sum of its parts. It’s really not a set of songs or a zine, it’s an intimate portrait of Jill Whit that also manages to speak to the collective experience we’ve all had. It’s rare that an artist can take something personal and make it feel so universal. Whit has done it here."

All orders include a PDF version of the album's accompanying zine.
