Produced by members of Bataille and Warning Light Severed Together by Outer Gods emerged from a three-year period as the culmination of various and disparate projects. From the collaboration with artist Meredith Kooi for the art show “Solar Heresies,” and the live scoring of films including Kwaidan and Kenneth Anger’s Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome. Intending to do an alternate film score the album gradually mutated into something all on its own, with the recording process following wherever the music guided them as if by an unseen element. Recorded mainly at Bedsitter Studios in Avondale Estates using a variety of means, from passing manipulated samples back and forth, writing parts in isolation and then fusing them together, and spending long nights recording whatever was revealed from emptying one’s mind and surrendering to the sound itself. Severed Together follows the release of Dismal Rift and represents the continuation of the duo’s eclectic and diverse discography.
