Massive and belligerent HNW manipulation of the real-time complete audio track of Lars Von Trier's brilliant deconstruction of American exceptionalism, Dogville.  One of my very favorite movies of all time, Von Trier's vision of the American sense of community is really an endorsement of the pessimistic philosophies of Saltus, Schopenhauer, Dostoevsky, and Ligotti, driving home the basic premise that people are shit and will take every opportunity to exploit one another and that life is ultimately miserable, base, and revolting-in a word, inhuman.  Just as the film is obvious but effective, so too is my treatment of the audio-this album is a crushing, completely assaulting mixture of brutal, stagnant HNW and veiled melodic movements, reveling in its own violence and cruelty but also inviting reflection within its illusions of non-movement.  Three hours of unending destruction and filth.  Revenge is the purest and most fulfilling form of catharsis.
Packaged in a DVD case in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies.  $20 ppd. in the United States, $33 rest of world.
