Following 2015’s full-length album, Dissolver, Dissolved is an EP with remixes and re-interpretations by musicians from around the world. The US is represented by A Box in the Sea (WA), The Sight Below (NY), and r beny (CA); other contributors include The Heartwood Institute (aka Jonathan Sharp, UK), Hainbach (DE), and Fake Empire (NZ).
The pieces exhibit a similar range of moods and styles as the original Dissolver LP, from lilting to tense, ambient to percussive, experimental to melodic. The production methods varied as well; Hainbach used recordings of the original track using a dictaphone, r beny merged a Dissolver track with one of Moody’s unreleased tracks, and The Sight Below pulled out a guitar and vintage TR-808 drum machine. Every artist brings a new dimension and interpretation of the themes of the Dissolver album.
