  • Description

    The cassette features a four panel j-card with photography by Emma Ruth Rundle; steel-blue ink imprinted on vintage white cassette shell; audio on NAC's own super-ferric tape. Tapes are hand-numbered (edition of 100) and include a digital download card. Self-released by ALN.
    "Dialetheia" is a collaboration between Mizmor and ambient artist Andrew Black (also Mizmor's live bassist). Two massive and introspective tracks fill space and time as we know it with undulating soundscapes - exploring bleak and beautiful isolation. Haunting and hypnotizing, the endless waves of sonic nostalgia, emerge triumphantly through sirens of solace and meditative winds.

    The collaboration began during the COVID-19 pandemic through file sharing. We made this album remotely, sending audio files back and forth over the internet, piecing them together like a collage, expanding on each others work, and producing modulations and modifications using tape and outboard gear to strike upon a certain sound. It was a somewhat inconvenient and novel approach to an album’s creation that accounts for a lot of beautiful quirks and otherwise-not-tried ideas.

    Overwhelmed by a sudden sense of traditions and ways of life being made obsolete, the duo imagines one walking through a museum of our nostalgia and past times. Lingering on the feeling of being both the observed and the observer in the scene, like one looking both at the reflection in the glass and through to the scene on the other side, it further expands to touch on the dualist illusion of the self. In this great experiment called civilization, we are both the experimenter and the subject.
