Deviate From Balance cover art

John Wiese's long-awaited Deviate From Balance is the artist’s first album since 2011's Seven Of Wands (PAN).  Recorded throughout Europe/UK, Australia, and the US, the album includes scored ensemble pieces including over 20 musicians on each, recorded in Melbourne and Portland, as well as audio documentation of installation pieces "Wind Changed Direction," a four-channel sound piece presented in the garden of the Getty Center (curated by Liars), and "Battery Instruments," an eight-channel piece presented at HSP in New Zealand, now heard for the first time.  Also included are various collaborations and recordings from live performances.  At over 80 minutes, Deviate From Balance has been packaged as a 2×LP with tip-on gatefold jackets.  Musicians appearing include Joseph Hammer, Ikue Mori, Evan Parker, C Spencer Yeh, Joe Preston, Smegma and countless more.  The material is extremely diverse and services as a comprehensive and detailed document of this prolific individual's work over the past several years.

This release coincides with an artist monograph of the same title, published by Hesse Press in Los Angeles, featuring a number of pieces represented on the double-album.
