Deproduction is a multi-media album by Terre Thaemlitz, sold as an 8GB SDHC card containing audio (48k/24bit AIFF files), video (86 min., HD 1920x1080) and texts (PDF). It was released on December 28, 2017 (JP: Comatonse Recordings, C.027). Two 12" vinyl EP's containing remixes by DJ Sprinkles were released in April, 2018 (JP: Comatonse Recordings, C.027.EP1 & C.027.EP2). The project was produced with support from documenta 14 and Akademie der Künste der Welt, with the world premiere at documenta 14 in Athens on July 9, 2017.
In Deproduction, Terre Thaemlitz investigates the awkward, uncomfortable and hypocritical power dynamics behind Western Humanist notions of family, and how they function internationally through processes of globalization.

For optimal listening, use a well balanced speaker system or headphones with full dynamic range. (Do not use built-in speakers on a laptop or cell phone, etc.) Because these works use little compression, and move between quiet and loud passages, it is recommended to set your volume level a bit louder than usual for your sound system, and leave it at a steady volume throughout. Adjust your base volume level during the first track, "Names Have Been Changed," so that the recurring string chords feel a bit on the loud side and fill your room. A read-along text document will be available during the event.
