Jozef Van Wissem: Lutes, Condensator Drones, Electronics / Jim Jarmusch: Acoustic and Electric Guitars / Front cover by Robert Longo All Compositions By Jozef Van Wissem and Jim Jarmusch.

The first two pieces "Cleveland" and "Akron" were recorded in 2022. These dark, long form, hypnotic drone pieces reflect the current state of America.

The 3rd piece "American Landscapes" was commissioned and performed by Stephen Petronio Dance Company in New York.

According to the New York Times the piece is a spare, almost soothing composition by Jozef Van Wissem and Jim Jarmusch itit's a combination of lute, acoustic guitar and electric guitar.

"Landscapes also features an arresting backdrop of changing images by the artist Robert Longo.

The duo was supposed to perform the music in New York during the event but Jozef Van Wissem was not able to enter the USA because of Immigrant Visa Issues.
