    Dream Wall On An Infinite Horizon is the second in a series of Mauerkrankheit style cello-based recordings.
    The Mauerkrankheit style of cello playing -- so named for after a German psychological affliction roughly translated as wall disease -- utilizes original bowing, percussion and amplification techniques developed by Glenn Weyant to play the militarized border walls, fences, migrant ephemera and natural Sonoran Desert landscape found along the U.S. / Mexico border.
    However, unlike Mauerkrankheit Volume I which was acoustic in nature, Mauerkrankheit Volume II : Dream Wall On An Infinite Horizon explores excessive amplification, feedback, distortion and effects which are regular features of more recent border wall performances.
    The combination of Mauerkrnakheit style playing and amplification heard on Dream Wall On An Infinite Horizon creates an evolving and steadily shifting soundscape for exploring the idealized, translayered multi-phonic harmonics and one-of-a-kind tunings which are often a corner stone of live performances in the borderland militarized zone.
    During the mixing of the final recordings which were recorded in single, extended takes, it became clear that Dream Wall On An Infinite Horizon sessions bore resemblances to well-worn and much beloved bootleg recordings by The Theatre of Eternal Music and The Dream Syndicate.
    It was therefore decided the recording should be titled with due reflection and high acknowledgement to that mighty strand of sonic DNA which was injected into the global subconscious by La Monte Young, John Cale, Angus MacLise, Tony Conrad and Marian Zazeela.
    Unlike downloads available on other sites, this bandcamp version of Dream Wall On An Infinite Horizon, includes six alternate outtakes plus the 50+ minute sound check from the original sessions which are not available anywhere else.
