Drapery is a recording of graphic notated songs by Laura Toxværd. The album is a mix of improvisation and composition. About her compositional process she explains: «Sometimes I need something abstract and improvisational, and then I like to design a graphic score where I note this to the musicians. Other times, I see the need for something that has more to do with tones, harmonies and rhythms, and then I note it on music paper.»

The album is released together with the LP Tidens Strøm, a studio recording of songs composed by Laura Toxværd and Songbook, which contains texts, lyrics and notations of the two albums Tidens strøm & Drapery.
