Subtitled Texts: Fragments, Remnants, & Sketches of Nonexistences, Audio Field Re-codings
Each of the discs for Dislocation Studies creates a place that does not exist as presented, if only by dint of geography and chronology.

This release is in an edition of 33 signed and numbered copies.
Audio by Vertonen and text by B. Edwards.
