More Info

" Dissolution is a reflection upon human webs of significance, and an investigation into the ways that electronic communications and recording technologies, both past and present, facilitate, complicate and transmute the formation of these webs. Sounds of shortwave radio, municipal broadcast recordings, fragments of found microcassette tapes, tones and instruments dramatize the fragility and failures of communication and language in shaping memory and experience.
This album is dedicated to Adam Sonderberg, without whom I could not have completed this project.- Olivia Block
Lesley Swanson, flute. Shaun Flynn, clarinet. Musicians were recorded at Experimental Sound Studio, Chicago Il in January 2015. The session was engineered by Alex Inglesian." [label info]
