recorded in uptown Chicago during the first week of 2004, each track is edited down more and more until here are hundred of samples of the multi-track free jazz/prog improvisation consisting of drums, bass, 2 guitar tracks, trombone recorded through two different mics in different areas of the room, vintage Korg analog synthesizer, as well as feedback loops and other studio weirdness.
the album begins with a barely edited version of the original futuristic free jazz piece, and then proceeds to get further away from the original in sound and feel. by the second to last track, there is little to no resemblance of the original recording, as the samples become smaller snippets of the material. the last track then is full circle: the original multi-track recording. all instruments recorded by Illinois based musician George M. Bowles, and all editing and production/mastering credits as well. about 5 movements of this piece were lost in a hard drive failure slowing the project down for years as attempts were made to recover the pieces, but to no avail. the final iteration ended up being Dissection 11, which was thrown together one weekend in early February 2014, years later. the mastering process of this album was done at this time as well.
the result draws upon everything from Sun Ra to King Crimson to fluxus to futurists manifesto as well as sci-fi sound effects and film.
