The Immeasurable Spiral was recorded in Seattle,Washington at Avast Studios by engineer and producer Randall Dunn (Earth, Eyvind Kang, Sunn 0))), Marissa Nadler, Wolves in the Throne Room, etc). The two pieces of immense sonic architecture were crafted to represent an unknown space where somberness and asphyxiation are of equal temperament.  This album has been mastered for vinyl by James Plotkin and consists of analog and digital synthesizers, electric organ, timpani, drum machine programming, live kit drums, and vocals. Compositionally this album addresses themes of transformation and the presence that exists outside of the self.  Within this dense soundscape, is the idea and the challenge to understand the unknown and how it positions the individual to reflect on their own sense of lack and emptiness.
