Since the beginning of the 2020 pandemic, we have been observing how Fossil Aerosol has been imagining various forms of glitches in the comings and goings of modern society and consumer culture for a long time. We have also observed how utterly surprising the character of such an actual event has been, and how off-the-mark most of our imaginings turned out to be.
Two albums of recordings were created during this time - between the late winter of 2020 and early 2021. The second will be released first.
After nearly a year of isolation, a brief real-time, studio interaction happened in late February 2021, and resulted in a suite of recordings (Volume II) that were largely without theme or plan.
