The concept for the music draws inspiration from the tragic fires in the Australian bush and Notre-Dame Cathedral, exploring the juxtaposition of beauty and devastation. Violinists Dale Barltrop and Francesca Hiew, violist Stephen King, and guest cellist Rachael Tobin comprise the Australian String Quartet. Impernance/Disintegration also features electronics and mixing from frequent Dessner collaborator David Chalmin.
