“Dissolver” is the first full-length release to bear Nathan Moody’s own name. After years of producing music and sounds across a variety of genres and media, “Dissolver” is the first in a trilogy of albums Moody calls the “Form Cycle,” which is followed by “Drifter” and “Deceiver.”
The album’s darkly cinematic tones come from field recordings, found objects, modular synthesizers, and guitar, sculpted into otherworldly forms. By turns textural and tuneful, Dissolver brings something different to each listener, rewarding deep and repeated listening.
Mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri at Black Knoll Studio (New York).
Early reception for Dissolver:
“Cinematic. A soundtrack for a David Fincher movie. Play moderately loud, late at night.”
“There’s so much to hear…so many layers that interact without stepping on each other…I have no hesitation in saying this is among the best albums I’ve heard in a long, long time.”
“It is a truly gorgeous film in my head and is not an album of 18 separate songs.”
“Cohesive as an album, and yet each track has its own character. Each track had a moment or three where I smiled because I was taken by surprise. Electronic but organic…familiar acoustic sounds mixed in with the abstract synthesis.”
