When asked in 2009 for some material for a possible release on Giuseppe Ielasi's Schoolmap Records, I immediately considered the possibility of taking the many unused music fragments that had been collecting cyber-dust on various hard drives and bringing them into some kind of order. Raw sketches, orphaned sounds, finished pieces for abandoned projects, music for theater and dance, even a few completed tracks that did not fit onto earlier releases - these are the component parts of Entanglements In An Orthopedic Sensorium. In the process of arranging the album, I aimed to impart each of the four "Entanglements" (fittingly reflected in Matthew Shlian's cover art) with a distinctive structure and dramatic arc without concealing the fragmentary nature of the utilized material.

The album's title was prompted by Steven Connor's review of Michel Serres' "Les Cinq sens". The relevant passage reads:

"Our house of experience, which includes not just each individual body but also what Serres calls the 'orthopedic sensorium' of our social structures must remain sufficiently open, the social ear sufficiently labyrinthine to allow capture of the unintegrated, or the disintegrative, and the rapture of the ear by what forms and deforms it."
