“Purification/Dissolution” is the fifth studio album by New York City composer/clarinetist Jeremiah Cymerman and his first solo album since 2008’s “In Memory of the Labyrinth System”. Self-released on his own new limited edition imprint 5049 Records and recorded entirely in his apartment during the first half of 2012 “Purification/Dissolution” marks a new direction of self-reliance, fierce independence and refined DIY aesthetics in Cymerman’s work.

Originally conceived of as a set of live, one-take recordings of clarinet and amplifier improvisations the album was recorded over the course of six months, during which time it took many new transformations and directions. Featuring rich & detailed production and his trademark hyper editing techniques, the focal point of the album is Cymerman’s live clarinet improvisations coupled with electronics and amplifier. Sprinkling each piece with discrete elements of feedback and tasteful sections of synth & electronics, each piece unfolds at a more organic pace than much of Cymerman’s previous work and presents a much more accurate representation of his live solo concerts.
