destruction
/dɪˈstrʌkʃ(ə)n/

1.
the action or process of causing so much damage to something that it no longer exists or cannot be repaired.
"the destruction of genre"

A NEW CYCLE BEGINS: 'ART OF DESTRUCTION' IS THE RESULT OF HDMIRROR'S PERSONAL LOUDNESS WAR. MADE DURING A PERIOD OF TOURING, INDISCRIMINATE INTERNET USE, AND LIVING IN A NON LINEAR DYSTOPIAN TIMELINE, THE MUSIC BECAME MORE FRAGMENTED. 'ART OF DESTRUCTION' IS LITERAL MUSICAL SHRAPNEL THAT WAS EDITED, CUT, NAILED, BURNT AND SIDECHAINED INTO SOMETHING THAT MIGHT ACTUALLY BE AUTHENTIC. THE ENTIRE PROJECT (PRODUCTION, MIXING, MASTERING, ARTWORK, RELEASING) WAS HANDLED BY HDMIRROR WHICH COMES WITH ITS OWN SET OF PROBLEMS/SOLUTIONS.

WHILE THE PREVIOUS TWO HDMIRROR 'ALBUMS/COLLECTIONS' WERE BASED ON LIVE PERFORMANCES. THE TRACKLISTS OF THOSE ALBUMS WERE A GIVEN. 'ART OF DESTRUCTION' HAS A MORE CONSIDERED APPROACH TO THE FORGOTTEN SCIENCE OF TRACK SELECTION AND ORDER. ABRUPT MOOD SHIFTS, SLOW FADES, SHIMMERING MORPHS INCLUDED.

MUSICAL DESTRUCTION CAN BE BEAUTIFUL AND/OR UGLY. THE RESULT HERE IS SEARING AND EUPHORIC. IT IS HOLY AND UNHOLY. ALWAYS ON THE EDGE. HARD OUT OF NECESSITY. COMPRESSORS AND SIDECHAINS ARE LEFT TO LET THEIR MISTAKES SPEAK. CLIPPING AND POPPING IS ALLOWED.

IT IS RELEASED ON THE EVE OF HDMIRROR'S NEW RESIDENCY AT RINSE FM AND WILL BE STREAMED ON THE DAY OF RELEASE, ALONG WITH WHAT MIGHT BE 'B-SIDES'. THE RADIO BROADCAST FORMAT HAS DIFFERENT MUSICAL IMPLICATIONS THAN LIVE PERFORMANCE. THE AUDIENCE CAN'T BE SEEN. THERE IS A FEELING THAT IT IS IMPORTANT TO SEND OUT SOME KIND OF A SIGNAL TO WHOEVER IS LISTENING.
